Today while I was at work I got paged to take a call. Nothing unusual about that. The man on the other end greeted me with a thick country accent. (It may have been and probably was fake.)
"Good Mornin' Maaaaaam"
Me: Good morning.
"My name is Buddy from the Oklahoma Wildlife Federation and I am calling today to tell you about some new information coming into effect in Oklahoma in October. Do you have a huntin' or fishin' license??"
Me: Ummm no we don't hunt or fish. Is this a personal call??
"Well maaaam I would like to tell you about the new law. Next year if you live in the state of Oklahoma and do NOT hunt or fish at least once in a 12 month period, we are going to ask you to leave the state. "
Me: silence.....mind racing.....this doesn't sound like Uncle Joe, or Tedly. Maybe it is a new crazy friend, CJ?? No I don't think any of them could keep a straight face that long. Is this guy for real?? Am I being punk'd?? Is there a camera watching me?? ARE YOU SERIOUS!? I started to laugh out loud.......
"Naaaawwww maam, not really, we are just soliciting donations for the Wildlife Camp for local children to experience all that Oklahoma has to offer...would you like to donate??"
NOT NOW YOU TRICKSTER!
I wonder if that works on anybody?? It really is mean....but funny.
