I rarely answer calls from local numbers anymore. Business calls for me are not coming from Seymour. The only calls that come from local numbers not in my contact list are either from Rebecca who wants to give me a free trip, or Michelle who is with the IRS giving me one last chance to pay what I owe with Applebees gift cards.
Perry called and said he would call right back… and Katie had just sent me a text message. Directly afterward, my mobile rang and I answered thinking it might be Perry using his work line or Katie using someone else’s phone. It wasn’t either of them.
Me: Hello, this is Shelley.
Me: Who is this?
Her: mumble mumble
Me: I’m sorry?
Her: You called me, BITCH!
There was no reason whatsoever for her to be rude. I couldn’t leave it alone so I sent a text that said, “It’s called spoofing. I didn’t call you. Google it.” Five minutes or so later (I assume she was Googling), she replied with, “oh i’m sorry.”
Was she sorry for being rude and calling me a bitch — or was she sorry she isn’t up-to-date with the world enough to know what call spoofing is? Either way, it’s sad because she had ZERO reason to be mean.
I figure if Dharma and Gracie can be nice to one another even on Barkbox day, everyone can roll down the hate a notch and be just a little kinder.
