"i didn't expect you to be there"

so i'm at work, and this lady who works in an office upstairs comes in and asks to use the phone. she makes the call and says "wow, i didn't actually expect to find you there."

so why the hell did you call? if you don't expect them to be there, shouldn't you call them where you expect them to be?

i dunno, guess it just annoys and amuses me at the same time.

any of you ever do this?

I thought this was gonna be some voyeuristic story about how someone got naked right in front of you without noticing you there. I am *so* disappointed.

yeah. WTF, if you didn't think I was there, why did you call? Better yet, the question, "Are you sleeping?" Will I ever say YES? I am? Of course not! I'm awake because the phone rang.

Or when someone calls and asks,"Who is this?" What you don't remember who you just dialed? or the speed dial doesn't have a name on it?

One word: voicemail.

She needed to talk to the guy, didn't think he was there, but wanted to put a message in his mailbox so he'd get it as soon as he came back and call her back. And surprise, he actually was there!

That's a lot easier than trying to call somebody at exactly the right time, especially when you're doing twelve things at once. Puts the ball in their court. Of course, if they're way busy too they may not call you back. It depends on the relationship between the two of you.

One of my friends called me last summer to ask what my phone number is. He had me listed in his address book as "Speed dial 5" and wanted to know for when he was out of the house.

Never had that happen, but one of my favorite phone prank-type activities was calling other offices in my building and asking for their phone #. You'd be surprised how many people will give it to you.

I absolutely can't stand this. When people call and say "Who is this?" I either:

1. Hang Up.

2. Say, "This is the number you dialed asshole, Who's this?"

3. Say "This is Flippy's House of Anus Cased Goat Sausages, home of Alabama's finest goat sausage encased in real goat anus tract. Would you like to order a case?"

I usually just hang up though.

I think we should embrace the comedic opportunities laid open for us by people who are JUST intelligent enough to use the phone.

"Hello?"
"Who is this?"
"I'm sorry, but I can't tell you that until I know your bank details. Security, you know."

"Hello?"
"Who is this?"
"This is the voice of the Mysterons. We know that you can hear us, earthman"

and so forth

I keep my phone off at work unless I'm not really busy (which is pretty rare), so my friends leave messages, knowing that I won't be able call them until around 6. When I do answer, I usually get a response like "I didn't think I'd actually get a hold of you".

I've actually had people call and say, "Where you at?"

Thats the absolute worst.

And no, not on a cell phone.

LOL, I agree.

Here are my standard answers:

Caller: Who is this?
Me: Who did you call?

Caller: Where are you?
Me: Where did you call?

dummies.

I was going to mention what crow_daw brought up. I have personally done this, but mainly to people who I usually call on their cell phone. Then one day I call them at home, and force of habit ask, "Where are you ?"
