I’m a little spooked.
The apartment complex where I live doesn’t have cable. I don’t know why they don’t but I’m sure it’s a long story. So I have a landline for
my internet and Directv for my mind numbing entertainment. Somehow I still get high speed internet DSL or something isn’t it?
Anyway I was at my computer yesterday after work. My girlfriend was busy chopping something in the kitchen she came over to cook me dinner. (What can
I say I’m a lucky man.
) The phone rang and since she was already up I asked her to answer it for me.
She answered the phone ‘hello’ standing there for a moment with her back to me saying nothing. Finally again she said ‘hello’ and that was
all. I was ready to tell her to hang it up. She asked if anyone was there waited another moment and hung up the phone before I had a chance to say
I asked her who it was and of course she said nobody said anything that she couldn’t hear anyone. Then she added that after she said hello the first
time she heard a click but nothing else changed. She joked that maybe it was my other woman and she just hung up after she heard my girlfriend’s
voice. I just laughed and nothing more was said about it.
Today I called work and told them I was sick and was going to stay home. I haven’t been feeling well but I think it’s more an allergy thing than a
cold. Still I’m off tomorrow and I can use the rest it’s been a busy couple of weeks at work and it’s starting to slow down.
At about 1:00 pm I received a rare phone call I answered said hello but didn’t get a response. After a few seconds I said hello again I heard a
faint click then only silence. I began to hang up the receiver then changed my mind and tried the call back feature. No luck the number was
It was about 4:30 pm this afternoon when I received the most recent call.
I was alone and just returned from a late lunch / early dinner from the little diner down the road. The phone rang I answered it nobody responded to
my greeting. Waiting patiently all I heard was a faint hiss nothing unusual. After about 5 seconds I heard a phone ring just one time then a click
like the line was connected I figured I had been transferred. I waited a few seconds then said hello but again nothing but silence I hung up the
So I started wondering what was going on I think it’s probably a marketing company either testing a new robo – calling machine or gathering data.
I think whoever it is wants to know the phone number works and maybe is trying to figure out when I'm home.
The last call I got was a little strange and I feel like I’m being watched. I’m not usually the type who is easily shaken but this deal just
doesn’t seem normal. So set my mind at ease and tell me I’m just paranoid.
