He Kept Getting Calls for the Builder Who’d Previously Owned His Number, but When the Builder Refused to Help, He Got a Ton of Revenge 

A man recently went online to share the hilarious revenge he’d exacted on the builder who refused to update the phone number on his website. Here’s what happened.

“I’d just gotten a new phone,” the man explained. “But as it turned out, my number was someone else’s old number.”

The number had belonged to a builder

“Every other week I’d get calls from ‘tradies’ who wanted to know why I wasn’t ‘on site, mate,’ or what I wanted done with this or that building project.”

Everyone was rude

The man explained that every time he’d tried to explain the situation, the callers either thought it was the builder playing a prank or became abusive.

Sick of this, the man Googled his own number. He soon found the builder it had previously belonged to — the number was still on his website.

The man called the builder, explained what was going on, and asked him to update his website and let his contacts know.

The builder’s response was less than helpful.

Much like his rude friends, the builder arrogantly told the man that the situation wasn’t his problem; it was up to the man to sort it out.

There was a chance for karma

A few weeks later, the man was given the perfect opportunity to solve the problem and get his own back.

Very early one morning, the man’s phone rang. He answered it. It was an irate driver. He said he’d arrived early and asked the man how to get in and where to put the sand.

It was meant for the builder

Half-asleep and confused, the man asked, “What sand?” The driver replied that a truckload of sand had been ordered, but there was no one on site to take delivery, and the gates were locked.

“Mate, it’s all good,” he told the driver. “Just dump the sand on the driveway. We’ll sort it when we arrive.” The driver asked if he was sure, as it was a lot of sand. The man replied that he was sure. The driver said, “Okay, boss,” and rang off.

The builder went crazy

An hour later, the man got another phone call. It was the builder. He launched into a tirade, saying he couldn’t access the site he was working on because there was, literally, a ton of sand in front of the gate — every grain of which would have to be shoveled by hand.

He happily admitted it

The builder asked the man if he was responsible, and the man replied that he was. “You told me to sort it out,” he said. “This is me sorting it out.”

The builder was all talk

The builder cussed the man out and promised that he’d track him down. But the man never heard from him again, and the builder very quickly updated his website.

The internet responded

The internet loved the man’s story. “If he didn’t have the brains to foresee how this would end, I fear for every structure he’s built,” laughed one.

“I love that you provided him with just an incredibly huge annoyance,” said another. “Nothing broken, nothing permanent; just plain annoying to deal with.”
