Always give a fake telephone number

A couple of months ago I accompanied my boyfriend to our local golf driving range. He was going to practice a bit before going golfing at a bachelors a few days after. Even though I was just going to spectate I still had to sign in and provide contact details.

Now I receive this phone call. I do not answer because I do not recognize the number. I listen to the voice mail instead…

I can’t make out half of what the guy is saying. Only the telephone number, something about Tiger Woods and a really enthusiastic wish that I enjoy the rest of my day.

My first thought is that somebody must have rented a Tiger Woods PC/PlayStation game on my account and have not returned it.

I listen to it a second time to try make out more. Quickly open Google and type in the number he gives. Results appear for the local Golf Club and Driving Range.

I listen to the voice mail AGAIN, now understanding where he is calling from and remembering that I was there a while back. I realize that he is trying to sell me golfing classes and the last part about Tiger Woods is actually “you might be the next Tiger Woods”.

Sorry guy, but this body was not built for sport and sun.

Because I didn’t answer the call and diffuse this salesman, I will probably continue getting calls from him.

Note to self: Always give a fake telephone number when filling any sign-in and or promotional type forms.
