My mom used to prank call my grandma

When I was 5 or 6 years old I recall my mom calling my grandma (her mother in-law) up every afternoon and blaring the Brady Bunch theme song from the TV over the phone. Then, she’d hang up afterwards. This went on every weekday for several weeks until I started crying after it became too much.

Was your gramma a rancid narcissistic bitch, OP?

"Hello Operator? I want that call traced. What do you mean 'what call'? The one recently imposed on me. It was a direct threat from a clearly unbalanced person, and I want them tracked down and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Now kindly do what I say or I'll have your job. My husband is a very influential person in this town. We will not be harassed by degenerates, do you hear me? Oh, just connect me with your Supervisor!"

Is your grandmothers name Dottie Hinkle?

OP you post this rather frequently. Pehaps. you should either seek a competent mental health professional or smoke copious amounts of pot. DL ain't the place for "a healing vibe."

You make up a lot of stupid threads, OP. How sad.

by Anonymousreply 8May 26, 2022 11:09 PM

Did you ever ask her why she did that? You’re mother was either very young and immature, or perhaps a free spirit and a little irreverent. What else did she do? Was she a fun mom? My mom was such fun until my uncle died and her sense of fun did too, only to be seen again on rare occasions.

Sounds traumatic, OP. It's probably best you were adopted.

I used to prank this woman I knew at her store every day. She was a bitch and I’d call her and yell “fuck you” wait for her response and depending on what she said, hang up. Sometimes she’d say “who is this”? Sometimes she’d cuss back which pissed me off and entertained me at the same time. I’d roll around on my bed laughing after each call.

I would never place a call from a private home. Have your au pair girl do it, from a pay phone in the village.

Perhaps you mother was named "Jan" and your grandmother was named "Marcia' or they were both nasty cunts?

Zsa Zsa Gabor called a mattress store to prank them. Look it up on YouTube - hilarious.

Is your Grandma still living? Did your Grandma ever find out who your pranking her? Did it upset your grandma meaning your Mom must have gotten results if she kept pranking her. Sad.

R19, Not outbound. But when I do receive the inbound scam or telemarketer I fuck with them. Pretend I am hard of hearing and make them shout, or English is not my first language, or "hold on while I put my dogs outside, they are jumping all over me" then set the phone down and come back 5 minutes later (sometimes they are still on hold)- if that happens I say "Wait, I hear someone at the front door- hold the line , please" and repeat.

Maybe she knew that your grandmother was more of a “Partridge Family” type gal and she was taunting her.
