    So here I am, five minutes ago, in my recliner, surfing Glocktalk when my phone rings. Number: Unknown.

    I answer with a stern , but polite, "How 'bout cha?"

    The reply I get is thick with an unmistakable accent sounding like someone just accidentally inhaled a gnat, I immediately knew he was from Hajiland.

    He said what I interpreted as "Achilachmakalimad".

    I replied swiftly with "HUH?"

    This is the conversation as it occurred...

    Him - "*indiscernible gibberish*"

    Me - "Come again?"

    Him - "I think *indiscernible gibberish*"

    Me - "I think you got the wrong number"

    Him - "Is this Canada?"

    Me - "No way bud, you've got the good 'ol US of A speakin'"

    Him - "Can I have number?"

    Me - "If you want one"

    Him - "I think I have wrong one"

    Me - "Me too."

    Him - "Think you and I'm veeeerrryyy sorry. Will you have good day?"

    Me - "I always do!"

    Him - "Goodbye"

    END CALL.

    Now that I think about it, I think he was a terrorist. Does anyone have the FBI's cell phone number? Should I have let him know that "IT, is in fact, ON CUZ"?

    BTW, I had my G23 at my side so I was not scared, nor did I feel personally threatened.

    You should not have put your phone number on that census form.

    You got a phone call from a middleeastern person far, far away from you and you felt safe because you had your 23 next to you? AND you think that your gonna be help to the FBI in the apprehension of a terrorist?

    That won't help, they've already blacklisted you as a terror suspect. Good luck trying to fly now.

    I don't have any tin foil, and the store is closed. Will a Suran Wrap hat work?

    Yes. You, Sir, are correct.

    "Is this Canada?"

    Heck, I would've assumed the same.

    :rofl: Don't worry about it, could be a wrong number or possibly a prank call by someone you know. Plenty of prank call sound boards online with just about any voice imaginable.

    Besides you got a gun. :supergrin:

    Yes, as long as you use original and not generic.

    That really shouldn't be as funny as it is. I think the truth in it, is what makes it funny.

    No. You'll have to use the big kettle that you boil spaghetti noodles in.

    Just be sure you take to noodles out and let it cool off first.

    Same reason I don't write Citibank a nastygram about having the wrong account information associated with my name and telephone number. It's so much fun giving the debt collectors a hard time for calling the wrong guy. Some days it's the only pleasure I get.

    I prefer "What up playa?"

    It really throws them off to hear me say that in my Southeastern American dialect.

    Saran Wrap won't help you in this particular situation. There's a Saran, Iran, a Saran, Afghanistan and a Saran, Kazakhstan. Good luck with that.
