In Which I Call New York

Last night, I showed my true colors as I pushed silly right to the border of awkward. 😉

Nathan blogged about his issues with Dominos Pizza. I thought it was funny, and wanted to taunt him. So, I went to his online book, which has his name on the bottom, and looked up his home phone number in New York. Thankfully, his name is unique enough that this proved really simple.

Using my Skype phone (so it wouldn’t say, “Michigan Call”), I called him posing as the pizza guy. It’s funnier if you read his blog post, so go read it. (Warning: There is some angry New Yorker language, but it’s really funny. 🙂 )

  1. I just read a blog about pizza delivery. I’m not sure how to take that. Reading a blog about pizza delivery problems might end up being the highlight of my day.

    I’m kinda sad now

  2. I read Nathan’s blog first and damned near burst a blood vessel laughing.

    Not only is your little phone prank the funniest thing I’ve read this week, I give you extra points for not using the phrase “Nathan, totally pwnd!,” because I’m so incredibly tired of that phrase.

    And now you have his phone number, Nathan can never look at his phone again without a certain degree of apprehension. Well done, sir, well done.

  3. First of all, Shawn rules. 1.) if he had been the one live blogging his pizza delivery, it would have never occurred to me to prank him…until, maybe the next day. 2.) While I was obsessively posting updates, GF wanted to know if I was really that desperate for material for the blog.

    Shawn, it was a masterstroke. And I got to talk to two UCF’ers in one day. 😀

  4. Kudos, Shawn. Like Nathan said, it wouldn’t have even occurred to me to make a prank call. I’d say “Bravo, Encore,” but I’m afraid you’d call me and pretend to be the Indian Embassy rejecting my visa application. 😉
    (Although I’d like to hear Shawn try an Indian accent. Heh.)

  5. And that, my friends, concludes my argument for staying anonymous on the net.

    Oh sure, make that point now, why don’t you?

    Shawn you may have started something: Like the Rick Roll, only on the phone – the Pizza Roll.

  6. At this point, I’m not sure which blog I should be posting this on. I was feeling totally “one-upped” by Shawn’s prank and was thinking about a way to get him back. I went so far as finding his address, finding a pizza place in his town and looking over on an old Whateveresque thread to see what he likes on his pizza.

    I stopped short of actually ordering a pizza and having it delivered to his house. Seemed a little too obsessive even for me. But it would’ve been funny.

    I couldn’t decide who’s blog this comment belonged on, so its on both yours and mine. Hah!

  7. Well, to continue with your polycommentiousness, I also cross posted this reply:

    hehehe — yes, it would have been funny. I’m curious, was it BC Pizza that you found? (It’s the only delivery place, and it’s pretty tasty)

    Also, don’t feel too obsessive. I looked up pizza places in your area too, and was planning to have a pizza delivered to your house. The problem is, believe it or not, there are quite a few pizza places in Brooklyn. I SOOOO wanted to get a pizza to your house before Dominos could…


  8. This is what the internet was created for.

    I’m just sorry I missed the live event. Guess I have to go RSS one of these days…

    It would never occur to me to prank someone like that (though I think I would laugh my head off if I were the victim). Good on you!
