One time I gave out The Rejection Hotline number as my own at a party. Totally immature, but ever since one of my friends introduced me to The Rejection Hotline, I wanted to give it out at least once in my life. I was curious as to how many people were actually going to try calling it. I thought it was always fairly obvious whenever I said, "hold on, let me look up my number" and read the number to them right off my phone. I know some people don't memorize their own phone numbers, but I also thought the random area code would give it away.
One of the more gutsier guys found me on Facebook through our mutual friends and messaged me telling me that I wasn't clever for giving out The Rejection Hotline number but that it made him laugh anyway. For anyone who hasn't tried calling The Rejection Hotline number for shits and giggles yet, it's a recording that says:
Hello, this is not the person you were trying to call, you've reached rejection hotline provided by the all new rejection hotline.com and sponsored by the new March 9th Holiday, Get over it day. Seriously, It's really a new holiday, check it out at getoveritday.com. Anyway, the person that gave you this rejection hotline number did not want you to have their real number. We know this sucks, but don't be too devastated. So why were you given a rejection hotline number? Maybe you're just not this person's type (note this could mean boring, dumb, annoying, arrogant or just a general weirdo). Maybe you suffer from bad breath, body odor, or a nasty combination of the two. Maybe you just give off that creepy, overbearing, psycho stalker vibe. Maybe the idea of going out with you just seems as appealing as playing leap frog with unicorns. Regardless of the reason, please take the hint and accept the fact that you were rejected and then get over it; and please do your best to forget about the person who gave you this number because trust us, they've already forgotten about you. Thanks for calling the rejection hotline provided by rejectionhotline.com.
Ever give someone/been given the number of The Rejection Hotline? Have you ever rejected anyone in a creative way?
