I had an odd phone call on the weekend from a complete stranger. When I answered the phone without preable the woman on the other end asked “Are you home?” You have to understand, this was a landline phone. I do recognise that calls can be diverted to your mobile, but all I wanted to reply with was, “How would I be answering the phone if I wasn’t?”
After explaining to the woman she has the wrong number my sister and I spend some time giving decent answers to that question. “Are you home?”
“No they’re not. This is the answering machine, leave a message after the tone. *beep*”
“No, I sent my body out to do a little shopping, I’m astral resting.”
“No this is the friendly neighbourhood elephant. Is this a trunk call?” (I don’t know either)
“Yes, but it’s not mine.”
“How did you guess?”
Any other suggestions?
