Sam Beckett Has Leaped Into The Phone Line

, , , , | Right | October 28, 2019

(It’s a typical morning at work, before the afternoon crowd gets in. The phone rings.)

Me: “Hello, thank you for calling [Store]. This is—”

(There’s a sound over the line, like someone dropping the receiver on the other end. Once it stops, I try again.)

Me: “This is [My Name]. How can I help you?”


Me: “Hello?”

(I’m about to hang up, when suddenly a voice comes over the line so loudly I have to jerk the phone away from my ear.)

Caller: “Oh, boy!”

Me: “Hello?”

(No response. The caller never says another word, and after a minute, I just hang up.)

Manager: *seeing my expression* “What’s wrong?”

Me: “I don’t know.”
