LADs Share Their Cringe Phone Calls And We’ve All Been There

For me, answering the phone to an unknown number is about as risky a phone call as I'm willing to take part in, but some people are more than happy to put themselves through a painful convo and record it for the chance to win prizes; and aren't we glad of that?

This beautiful schadenfreude came to be because Foxy Casino dreamt up some savagely awkward phone calls and offered prizes to the brave souls who agreed to go through with them.

But where they were rewarded for their misfortune, unfortunately, you lot weren't so lucky. Bad times. Some of you got in touch to share the most awkward phone calls you've ever made.


Get a load of James Whittle, who managed to attain a particularly sensitive injury whilst on holiday in Florida. It started as an encounter with his girlfriend in her parents' swimming pool and ended in a pint of lost blood, a humiliating emergency call, four burly firefighters and a call home to his parents to obtain his insurance details. The cringe is strong in this one.

Spare a thought, also, for Josh Simpson, who answered what he thought was a prank call with an outburst of expletives. But, sadly for Josh, it was actually a recruiter calling regarding a job application. Needless to say, he didn't get the job.

Finally, we have Jack Jarvis, who told his Mum he was taking the dog for a walk so he could sneak out to his girlfriend's house. Minutes later he was on the phone begging her for a lift to the hospital, because his girlfriend's braces had become attached to... well... him. Now that's a car journey they'll never forget.
