Ding-Dong Ditch

// December 24th, 2009 // Funny Blogs

Have a guy you’re desperate to get off the phone with? Next time try the Ding Dong Ditch!

Many emotions (desperation! fear!) start boiling up when a guy starts blabbing about how all girls are psycho, people think he is gay (but he’s not!), how he was homeless once, and the relationships past (all her fault!) Mostly, you feel like you are drowning.

How do you immediately get of the phone with a long (s)talker, without divulging any details about yourself? Fake poor cell service is amature. On the spot in said situation, I created the Ding Dong Ditch.

Anyone can master the Ding Dong Ditch. I  rang my own door bell to pretend someone had arrived.  Queue dog barking; ”ok, Gotta go!”  I hung up.

I actually threw my phone on the floor when I snapped it shut, like the phone was responsible for toxic creepy conversation (sorry phone).

I had lenghty apology in inbox re: blabbing on and on, he was nervous, and how when he gets to know someone is actually a great listener. Any ideas out there for how to ditch that?

    SLMAO! Hahaha! A crafty solution to an annoying problem. Have you had any follow-up phone calls? I’d think a rightfully passionate (s)talker would prefer phone calls to emails.

    I have since received 1 text message, 1 Christmas Eve voicemail saying “I’m not really doing anything, so call me back,” (REALLY? No plans even on Christmas Eve!??!)and 2 emails which I have not actually logged on to read.
