What Would You Do?

Ok, here is a question that I hope to get some comments on.

To me, this situation is hilarious.  Quite annoying but hilarious.

I've been getting prank called by a woman.  I don't know this woman at all but to me, she is a little off her rocker, obsessive, and a lot possessive.  She varies the calls over time.  Consistently blocks her number. Never happens at a particular time of day.

Typical conversation is:
Her  - "May I speak to (insert guy's name)?" [Yes, I know the guy she is asking for.  He is an acquaintance. Who lives about 1500 miles away.]
Me - "There's no one at this number by that name." (hangup)

This morning there were several calls of this nature back to back.  Finally, by the last call, I was over the humor of the call and decided to mess with her and make my own humor!  This time when she asked for (insert guy's name), I told her that he was in the shower and I'd give him the message when he got out.  Now this time she hung up on me!

Yes, I had quite a chuckle about this.  I know it was wrong but I was so over it.  It wasn't even 8 am yet!!!

How wrong was I?

LOL....this is hilarious. I mean your solution is.
I have not the slightest clue how I would have reacted. Trying to reason? Hanging up?
No clue. Weirdos like that give me a bit the creeps to be honest.
And no, you weren't wrong. If that is what it takes to get rid of her, so be it.

I don't think you were wrong - crazy folks need to be confronted ever once in a while. What I would have given to see her face when you told her that! *lol*

LOL that is too funny. You handled it quite well.

I would've done the same! After, say, 2 calls where you tell her that X isn't at that number, she should stop calling.

Um, if she's that obsessive, I don't think I'd want to give her any reason to think he's there. Now she'll never stop calling!!! I wonder why she's calling you for him? Have you told him some woman keeps calling your house looking for him?

I think I would have done the same thing you did. And, unfortunately, if she doesn't stop, I'd change my number and make it unlisted. I mean seriously, don't people have better things to do with their time?? Obviously not in her case...

I had a similar problem years ago, but they started calling at midnight. When I reacted they called more so I got an answering machine and they stopped pretty quickly.

That is too funny!!! You handled it great in my opinion.
