A New Level of Awkwardness

23 Jun

Phone: Ring Ring

Me: Hello?

Automated VM: This is not a sales call. We are a collections company calling to help you solve your debt problems. We can get you discounts on your debt. Please call us….

Me: [Freaking out. Dialing hysterically. Wondering what the hell these people could be calling about.] Hello, I just received a call from an automated message about a collection and I need to know what this is about? I have no idea what is going on…

Speaker: Okay, what’s your phone number? [I give it to him] Are you ______? [Yes] We are calling to settle [Insert ex-boyfriend’s name here]’s debt.

Me: Oh, that’s my ex-boyfriend… I don’t have any contact with him anymore.

Speaker: That’s just fine ma’am. He had you as a reference for the account, but I will take your name off the list.

Me: Thank you.
