To think sister's boyfriend isn't that funny?

So for the past few months her boyfriend has been ringing me up and shouting random shit down the phone. A few examples are

me - "hello?"

and the phone goes down.

me - "hello?"
him - "Lets all buy a house"
me - "sorry??"
him - "its my fucking house and you'll never take it away from me"

phone goes down with lots of laughter in the background.

me - "hello?"
him - "I just had a massive poo and now my bum is hurting"

phone goes down and I can hear sister howling with laughter in the background.

These examples are just the ones I've had this week! like I say it's been going on months. Sister thinks he's hilarious. My mum says not to say anything to sister as she'll "get upset" hmm

AIBU to think he's obviously a bit of a twat and should be told?

Does he smoke anything he probably shouldn't be smoking?

he sounds like a tit

YANBU. Calmly explain that you find it annoying and politely request him to stop. Failing that, do it back grin

Every time he does it you should phone him back and say,

Him - "Hello"
You - "Fucking twat, fucking twat"

Repeat as necessary, should get the message through eventually.

Isn't there some kind of whistle you can buy to shrill down the phone in order to instil some kind of Pavolvian repulsion to phoning you?

How old is this boy? They're both in school still surely?

Get caller ID so you can ignore him?

Failing that, call him up at 2am and see how he likes it grin

they're 18 and 19 believe it or not.

Sometimes it IS 2am when he does it. I called him back once and had a go because I'd been working nights and had only just managed to drift off to sleep when he called to tell me that my DS had fat cheeks hmm

hahhaa i am drunk and "FUCKING TWAT" has very much amused me

mayorquimby Wed 31-Aug-11 23:59:01

they sound like immature morons.

PerryCombover Wed 31-Aug-11 23:59:29

They just sound really young

Sneer at him in public, that'll stop it

In all seriousness, I'd put your foot down, regardless if it will "upset your sister". Especially if you work nights and have an erratic sleep pattern. My sister has regularly been yelled at told sternly that no, I can't talk to her about crap now, because I'M ASLEEP

When I read your OP I thought "WTF. Is he on drugs? What a twat!" etc. But then when I realised he was 18/19 I realised that I would probably have found random nonsense like that really quite funny at that age. Doing it all the time and at 2am definitely not on though.

I am not drunk, but 'fucking TWAT' amused me highly too. Please do that smile

I like the idea of a whistle. I'd blow it very loudly every time you hear his voice, or your sister's, on the phone. Even if they're ringing about something genuine. Then ring them back and blow it again. And again. Then switch off the ringer on your phone for a week.

YANBU. Is he an ex-public schoolboy by any chance?
Caller ID. Not free, but has added benefit of catching most sales calls before they get to you.
Incidentally, is there any reason why your mother should not want your sister upset, even at your expense? Sorry, don't mean to pry, don't answer if you don't want to.

Isn't there some kind of whistle you can buy?


Next time he phones you up with inane shite phone him back and when he answers give him a blast on the whistle. YOU ARE THE REFEREE grin This is your way of showing a red card.

Love the whistle idea grin

worraliberty Thu 01-Sep-11 00:31:18

I suspect if he was actually getting fucked, he'd have less time for twatish phone calls grin

"call him now and shout "willywillywilly!"" grin
