Nope shorty08322, I haven’t do any prank call before, even during April Fools’ Day. There are lots of idling people like to do such mischievous things on this day. There are lots of undesirable accidents happen due the prank phone calls. The local stations and the hospital emergency departments receive numerous of calls the whole days. They couldn’t make sure that which call is the true and which call is false. They feel frustrated and irritated for there is nothing happen totally when they rush to the spots. They couldn’t just ignore the calls so they have to spend extra time to find out the real people who need help badly. This has procrastinated their usual job and case undesirable consequence to the people who need emergency assistance urgently. Nowadays the authority always urges the public don’t send any false or prank calls during the April Fools’ Days. They have traced that these idling people are mostly kids and teens, so parents are also advised to take care of their youngsters not to send such meaningless phone calls to the department concerned anymore. Happy posting and take care.

I only made a prank call once in my life. I was 6 years old and an older kid put me up to it. He told me is was going to be fun, and at 6 I certainly didn't think it would do any harm. He random dialed the phone and then hand it to me and I said whatever it was he told me to say. (I don't remember what that was) What I do remember is that the lady on the other end, reamed me out up one side and down the other. She told me she knew who I was, she was going to tell my mother and I was going to be in such big trouble. This was in the 60's and there was no such thing as caller ID. I was miserable. When I went home I cried and confessed. I wasn't in trouble but I was educated and I never made another prank call.

Better not get involved in prank calls my dear. it can get you into serious trouble. Gone are the days when a call could not be traced. Today a call can be pin pointed not only to the number but also the location from where it was made. just be careful least you find yourself behind bars all of a sudden.

I get pissed when I get blank calls and I am getting a few and can't trace the number. I just ignore it. My friends and I used to make prank calls to my other friends when I was younger. It was fun and the humour was appreciated. I also love this site where you get hillarious audio clips of prank calls. It is really funny. Have a nice day!

I don't do prank calls. Neither should someone else. I just want to rant about stuff about prank calls because it almost cost my mother's life the other night. My dad wasn't home yet because he was at some meeting with his fellow doctors. My brother was still in his review class for the Medical Technologists Board exam. My sister-in-law was out of town working. We were left alone in the house and it was rainy. I was working online (actually doing Mylot among others) while my little brother was playing WOW. My mother was already in bed (it was around 11pm) reading. Several hours ago, she was telling me that she has these episodes of 'fears', her heart was beating fast but her blood pressure was fine. I told her to just read in bed and just relax. A few minutes after the phone rang. Unfortunately, she was the one who answered it. Moments later I entered the room when my brother called me because my mom shouting. When I went in, she told me to talk to the person who was on the phone and when I did, the person was talking as if he was muffled and sick and he sounded like my dad or brother. I told the person to cut it out and they laughed! I was quite furious because my mother almost had an attack because she was afraid something bad must have happened to my siblings or my father! It's not a funny thing.

Nope Not anymore I remember I use to when I was a kid me and my sister did it a few times. But now with everyone pretty much owning a caller ID I wouldnt take a chance since knowing my luck I would probally get caught and then something bad would probally happen to me.

With all the technology advancements today, I dont even see how thats possible. Nowadays someone with caller id can report you and then the phone company will cancel your service.
