Why you shouldn't answer your phone at 3 a.m. from an unknown number

I wake up to the sound of my cell phone ringing.  I turn my head towards my clock and see that it's 3 a.m.  I look at my phone and it's a number I don't recognize.  I throw my phone across the bed and roll over to go back to sleep.  Not even a minute later my phone starts ringing again.  It's the same number.  I decide to answer it even though I'm half asleep.


"Hey what's up!"

"Who is this?"


Pat would be the 23 year old who was trying to convince me to go home with him Friday night.  I gave him my number but I didn't save his in my phone.  I'm not looking for a dude to hook up with and I had no plans of talking to him again.  Normally I wouldn't answer the phone if it was an unknown number.  Except when I'm half asleep apparently.

"So you want to come over?"

No Pat.  No I do not.  You're really going to call me at 3 a.m. because you want a booty call?  I flat out told you that I do not go home with guys from bars.  Why would I suddenly change my mind?  If you think maybe I'll be wasted and cave you are wrong.

I told Pat that I was sleeping so no I would not be going anywhere.  After another minute of pleading I told him I was going back to bed and suggested he do the same - alone or with some other chick that's not me.

I need to wear a t-shirt that says "no I am not going home with you" and maybe add "but you can still buy me drinks if you want to!"

This is why I don't like to answer the phone when it's an unknown number.  If it's important you can leave me a voicemail.  I should probably not have given him my number but I figured I could just ignore the call if he called.  I didn't take into account that I would forget all about that when I'm half asleep.

So I guess I proved a point to myself.


  1. I don't understand how a guy thinks he can call you up at some ungodly hour (generally drunk) and actually pull off a booty call. I doesn't make sense.

  2. I can't believe guys like that actually get phone numbers!
