Not funny

I mulled all morning over whether I should write about this or even share it. It's just too disturbing that someone would think to pull such a stunt.

I realize that when you put a mobile number online, you open yourself up to people with sick and twisted minds but so far, I haven't had an issue. No psycho phone calls, no harrassing texts or emails - just the usual "haters gonna hate", nothing more.

So this morning, I got a text message from someone asking for help. Turns out, it was a joke.
I won't disclose the situation, or what was written, but I didn't react right away and after some probing (and a phone call from a landline where I pretended to be a dental clinic calling to confirm an appointment), the truth came out.

Pretending your life is in danger is not funny to me.

So where does one go from here? If you're reading this, I'm open to an apology. Email is fine.

Nah, don't feel sorry for me. Feel sorry for the jackass who thought pretending to be in trouble was funny.
