I get ready for work naked.
I don’t want to get makeup or hair on my clothes. So clothes go on last.
My cell phone rang last week, as I was getting ready for work, and it was my boss. I ran over to my bed, where my phone was sitting, sat down, and went to hit the green button… when I realized that I could see my naked self, looking back at my naked self on FACETIME.
AGGGHHHH! NO FACETIME! NO FACETIME!
I immediately threw my phone across the room. I grabbed a towel. I wrapped the towel around my naked self… and picked up my phone.
I called Deanna, the Office Manager.
Deanna! Oh my gosh! Deanna! Oh my gosh! DEANNA!
Meredith, what’s the matter?
Richard just FaceTimed me!
I DO NOT HAVE ANY CLOTHES ON!
Hahahahaha! That’s hilarious. You need to call off work today.
I debated a little bit, and then I called my boss back. Clearly he wanted something.
Yeah, hey, Meredith. Thanks for calling me back. What time is our meeting with so-and-so today?
Richard! YOU CANNOT JUST FACETIME SOMEONE!
Oh, yeah. Sorry about that. I think my face hit that button.
DID YOU SEE ANYTHING?!
Uh… no. Nope. Nothing. I hung it up right away. It never went through.
Nine. So-and-so is coming in at nine.
He seemed so calm. I really don’t think the call went through. Plus, I did only see myself and not him.
But holy crap! What if he had seen something? I. WOULD. DIE.
When you FaceTime on the iPhone the buttons are still red and green, so other than the fact that you can see the camera is on, you could very easily just answer the call and not think anything of it.
Which brings me to the point of this article…
IT IS RUDE TO FACETIME SOMEONE.
The person on the other end could be going to the bathroom, picking their nose, sitting on their bed naked, or a million other private things that they don’t want to share with you.
NEVER EVER FACETIME SOMEONE UNLESS YOU PICK A TIME, AND YOU MUST FIRST TEXT TO CONFIRM THE OTHER PERSON HAS ON CLOTHES BECAUSE YOU MAY CAUSE THE OTHER PERSON EXTREME ANXIETY.
I’ve deactivated my FaceTime access so this will never happen again.
Okay, so tell me about your embarrassing phone call stories.
