Whimsical Wednesday # 227

Welcome back to Whimsical Wednesday!

The day for your googled giggle that gets you over the hump that is Wednesday and sliding down into the weekend.

I'm going to try this!


  1. That is too funny. I wouldn't be able to pull it off and sound sincere. I would be giggling.

  2. Oh that's going on my list !

  3. Hi River,

    If only I had the courage to do that ...




  4. Most of those calls that I get are robo calls, but i am going to try and use this if I get a chance.

  5. Love it. If only our phone showed numbers...

  6. Brilliant. I might do that.

  7. cheryl; I'm more likely to do this when I have a hayfever hangover headache, then my voice won't be recognised.

    fishducky; let us know how it goes :)

    Grace; it's on my list!

    Plasman; you have the courage.

    joeh; let us know if you get interesting results.

    Susan Kane; it's a great idea, yes?

    Elephant's Child; it doesn't show numbers? Do you have your favourite people to call stored in the 'phonebook' folder? (app?) then when one of those people call you it should tell you the name and number.

    Andrew; I knew you'd be willing.

  8. In reply to the last such call I received in a most officious tone, I said I was Detective Sergeant So & So from whatever police station...I made up the names as I went along...and the caller on the other end promptly hung up.

    Prior to that when I've been asked by name by someone calling me from India or elsewhere I've replied: "I'm sorry she's not here. She died a couple of days ago and we're having her wake...bye, bye!" That makes them disappear quickly, too! ;)

  9. Margaret-whiteangel; I love this idea.

    Lee; my daughter does something similar; she says, let me get my husband on the phone. Usually the caller hangs up right away or else her husband says, "Detective (Inspector/ sergeant/constable) Harkman speaking, how can I help you?" That gets a hang up.

  10. ...I always tell these callers that I don't understand them and hang up.
    Have a great day.. hugs.. Barb xxxx

  11. Hahahaha
    Me too. I'm really going to try it.

  12. Here is America "Land of the Free?" I'd be afraid to do that now days. Some one would show up at the house!

  13. That made me laugh out loud. I have no idea why;0 Hug B

  14. That made me laugh out loud. I have no idea why;0 Hug B

  15. Barbara; I've been known to go "eh?" really loudly then put the phone down as if going to get someone else, then I hang it up 10 minutes later.

    Belva; me too, one day. I rarely get blocked calls.

    Mohave Rat; try it when you've called the police and they've said there's no one available right now...

    Buttons Thoughts; made me laugh too, that's why I posted it here.
