Re: Ever rang someone in the same house?
Before my company went all open plan a small group of us, who were good friends, shared an office. We regularly called each other. If anyone was distracted enough to answer the phone without realising it was one of our numbers, they'd generally get something along the lines of 'you ****' shouted down the phone at them. Childish I know, but it whiled the hours away.
Once people got too wise to it, we got more sophisticated, dialing the full number with dialing code so it showed up as an external call, or sneaking to another office to make the call.
