What? Why would she... No logic. I see no reason why she would do such a bitchy thing.
OP could be one of those people that call all the damn time. You know what I mean. That "friend" you gave your number to because they were your partner in class, but they keep calling just to ask what's up or even worse, to tell you what's up every few hours. Kinda sensing that vibe here, just sayin.
What a dumbass. Even if you were a prank caller, that doesn't necessarily mean you're a deranged stalker. 99% of prank calls come from bored kids. Ask her to remove the number, and maybe be careful what information you share with a person who gets that freaked out by such a minor thing.
Way to jump to the worst possible conclusion! Do people not answer calls from unknown numbers anymore? You never know, it could be your long lost grandma or something.
Unknown/blocked numbers are usually telemarketers or debt collectors. If it's someone who really wants to get a hold of you, they can leave a message WITH their number. My dad used to say that if someone didn't have the decency to call from a listed number, then he didn't need to have the decency to answer their call. Generally I agree, it is pretty rude to call from an unlisted/blocked number. That's like someone calling you and asking who you are when you pick up. They called YOU, they should be revealing THEIR identity (or number in this case).
As far as the FML goes, the number wasn't blocked/unlisted, or the friend wouldn't have been able to post about it. I'm the same way with blocked/unlisted numbers, if it is important, they will leave a message or text me. However, I ALWAYS answer if its a non-800/obvious spam number in case it is either someone whose number has gone missing from my phone, or someone I know that for whatever reason had to borrow a phone and call me.
Since both my grandmothers are dead, a call from them would be quite a welcome thing. This is especially true if it was from my maternal grandmother. She's been gone for a long time, and had Alzheimer's for years before that. A call from her in the state I remember her best would be ideal. I'm a huge fan of The Twilight Zone and the original Tales From The Crypt comic.
