In case you missed my super creepy post on Facebook this morning (or if you’re not on my friend’s list), N had a very creepy Skype in the early hours. Thank GOD I didn’t pick it up because I can tell you now, I would freak the freaking heck out and lose my shizz.
So we have a special Skype number that my family and friends can call to reach us here in London. It’s a local area code and it doesn’t cost them anything extra. We do get the occasional wrong number but even those are pretty rare. We did go through a phase where we were getting bogus calls from sales people but those have finally stopped as well.
And then around 07.30 this morning the Skype number rang through. N saw the 859 area code (which was my area code while I was at Berea) and realised it was the middle of the night back home and answered, thinking it was an emergency.
He takes the call. A old-ish sounding woman comes over the line and says:
I need to get this person out of my living room, tell me what I have to do.
N, rightfully flabbergasted said nothing for a few seconds and finally responded with a simple “Hello?”.
She again says:
Tell me how to get this person out of my living room
At this point, N is beyond freaked and responds again with “Hello?”.
Ten seconds of dead silence go by and then the whispering starts. Scary, creepy whispering, as if she’s holding the phone away from her face. N couldn’t make out what she was saying, apart from her fast and frantic whispering. This goes on for around twenty more seconds and then she stopped. Silence for nearly a minute.
And then the line went dead.
How. Bizarre. Is. That?
Seriously. Just typing that out freaks me out ridiculously. We’ve googled the number and it’s from Junction City, KY (not Berea as I’d thought) and is registered to an M.T. Grider.
Completely and utterly bizarre.
N kind of wants to call it back later today in the comfort of daylight on both sides of the world but is unsure. What do you think? Do we call the number back!?
