Reverse charged prank calls

I have a friend who keeps giving telemarketers my number. His name is Joe. He thinks it’s funny when they call me, expecting an easy sale, and I run my standard anti-telemarketer ritual of talking for a minute and then just staying silent.

I decided it was about time I got him back.

My problem with prank calls is that I always laugh in the middle of them. I needed someone else to do my dirty work. So, like every other Australian male who needs a little bit of spring in his step, I turned to the Australian Medical Institute. And they called him for me.

I highly recommend this course of action, partly because I’m sick of being inundated with AMI ads, and because it’s free.

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the pastor of City South Presbyterian Church, a church in Brisbane, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus. If you'd like to support his writing financially you can do that by giving to his church.

  1. Oh, heavens. This is not funny. I mean, seriously…it’s not.

    But thankyou at least for satisfying my curiosity as to whether or not the person in question has actually done anything concretely bad. (Though I’ve met Joe, I don’t know him – but am constantly hearing people around me blame him for *everything* that goes wrong in their lives – even for some quite ridiculous things that no-one could be to blame for…surely?)

  2. But how do you top that? It might have to involve Kyle and Jackie O and we really don’t want to go there…
