Made a slight goob of myself!

Post by Jody Rife on Wed Mar 09, 2011 9:35 pm

I wonder if any of you have ever done this,
Last night I was sooo tired , I had been up since 5:30, busy all day 3 kids and a hubby,etc,etc. At 9 I fell sound asleep on the couch. At 9:30 my phone rings. The smart thing to do would be let the machine get it but NO! In my "drunkin like state", I answer the phone. It was a lady wanting to know about having me come to her boys b-day party. She kept asking questions that I tried to answer. The harder I tried to straighten up, the worse I got. Finally, I told her, "I'm so sorry, I have to be honest, I was fast asleep when you called and I'm a little out of it. She laughed and seemed to understand but I have to wonder, will I hear back from her????

This wouldn't be so bad if it was the 1st time I have done this. Once before, I had dropped my checkbook in a parking lot and it was the Police office calling me! I was so out of it, the officer had to hang up on me and call me back the next morning. I really don't drink LOL but if you call me after 9pm, you won't believe me! Sometimes I can really embarrass myself! Razz

Oh, you poor thing!!! I did that once last year. A lady woke me up out of a dead sleep early in the morning, and I quoted her a really low price over the phone for a birthday party...I felt horrible, but I HAD to call her back and correct myself...she never called back...maybe it would have been worth the cheaper price better than nothing at all?

Oh man, I know the feeling! I do NOT answer the phone EVER if I've been sleeping. My brain doesn't work, and my tongue won't form proper words. My only problem is that in my sleep-state I automatically try to answer when the phone rings, and have to catch myself. LOL. Hopefully she'll call back!

Oh, is that inappropriate? ...shoot.

Haha. I may have done that once or twice. I mean, I work from home - sometimes getting dressed is such a chore...Razz

I used to answer the phone when the ringing woke me up - I don't do that anymore, haha. Way better to call them back than to try and dig words out of my still-sleeping brain...

lol!
This made me laugh soooo hard!
I wish I could stop myself.... I have had whole telephone conversations and not remembered them. Even when the person reminds me later I only have this vague recollection of the conversation. I have to make sure I can't hear the phone ring at all.
And I have spent whole days trying desperately to remember who the hell rang me this morning and what they wanted....... I know it was something....
Nice to know I'm not babbling in my sleep on my own!

I forward our "home/business" line into my cell, and turn it off at 9pm. Back on at 8 am. The kids have my husbands private cell number for emergencies.

My husband is polygraph examiner. You would not believe the calls we get at 4 am!!! Try talking to someone at 3:30 in the morning about "infidelity." Oh yeah. New definition of "goob!"

OR, the calls I get at 7:30 AM 'Claremont' time, "Oh, sorry I know it's a bit before 8, but our party is tomorrow and ..." EXCEPT, they are calling about a party in Claremont, MD, not Claremont, CA!!!! It is actually 4:30 AM in California!!

That's what I get for doing uber marketing about being a "face painter in Claremont." Who knew there are a zillion Claremonts around the US! I get calls all the time for Manhattan. "Do you mean Manhattan beach?!" Of course not. "I think my travel fee is going to be a bit much to get me to your Manhattan!"

In this is why my kids are instructed NOT to answer the phone! It's almost always a client, and if I am too busy to answer it myself, I am too busy to talk to someone. LOL.
