Fake Friday Fun

After a dissertation all-nighter, I need my morning fuel
Sunny day. Great morning for coffee, toast, a brioche, eggs and cheese in the front room, with the sun streaming in through the open windows. Get it while it's hot...literally. The weather forecast spells rain at around 1pm.

I have confessed that I am not the most gadgety person in the world. I love technology but I am not a slave to it. When I buy a phone for example - I don't go through all the features. I am simply looking for excellent call quality, and maybe cuteness. The other bells and whistles do not interest me, if it's a cheap phone. So in the height of  boredom, I started going through my phone this morning and there it was - the fake call option.

I have now activated my fake call option
Have you ever been trapped in a conversation with someone and you just needed to escape, and you hope and pray that your phone will ring so you can beat it? You do not want to risk sending a text to a friend to call you, for fear of offending your "aggressor". I have been there and Fake Call is for me. lol. For the daft like myself, the fake call option allows you to record your fake call voice, so you can simulate a phone call while in the depths of an "I need rescuing" moment. I love how Samsung describes it as an option for emergencies.

With the simple press of a button, you can activate your fake call, even if your phone is locked. So in my case, I can slip my finger on the hot key, and after 30 seconds, without it seeming too obvious, my phone rings, with my fake voice on the line, in case my companion is farse (nosey) and is listening in. At this point, I quickly excuse myself to take my emergency call. Gone are the days when you had to pretend you were on the phone, and hope to dear God that your phone did not really ring while you had your phone on your ear. lol.

I set up my fake call this morning and I am set now for any eventuality. I cannot believe this has existed all this time and I never knew! Hurray for technology.

  3. Fake call?!?! Seriously? I feel like I've won the lottery. I like to distance myself from others, avoiding actual conversation as often as possible. A fake call is exactly what I need. Now when I want to be left the f*ck alone (which is frequently, believe me), I have the perfect out. Telling people, "You know, I really don't feel like talking with you right now. You bore me, and I have tweets to twit," is no longer my only option. Thanks!

  6. Oh my gosh -- that is hysterical! Didn't even know this existed. There's probably an app for something similar for my iPhone.

    These days, we're all so busy, it's almost assumed that if you stop to chat, that you can only visit for one minute as both persons are probably on their way to an appointment.

  7. SHUT UP. That is so awesome! Why wasn't that around when I was dating??? Girls these days have it so easy. ;)
    Have you heard about a phone number that you can give someone if you're not interested? There is one for every area code in the states, and it's a recording saying the person gave you a fake number. Pretty funny.
