You're are in your house in Mexico, sitting peacefully at the kitchen table, posting on myLot. Your two boys, 12 and 13, are supposedly visiting with friends. Your cellphone rings. A weird child's voice whines something, you can't make out what it says, it just sounds very strange. Then a very threatening male voice shouts at you.'If you go to the police, we will hurt them, or worse. We have kidnapped your children!' You call their friend's house, and it turns out that they are happilly playing there. And everybody (with the kind of 'stupid you' tone of voice) tells you not to worry, that's how things are down here. I have been living in this country for 20 years, but there are things I don't get used to.....

It would bother the heck out of me. I couldn't rest for days, I would be a nervous wreck. If I had caller ID on the phone, I would pass it on to the police. Then I would have to call a friend or somebody and let them know what had just happen. And pray that it is a prank call.
