Plant a phone call to yourself

Somes you want to find an excuse to get out of uncomfortable discussion, or try to look busy. Those are the time where you wanted your cell phone ring. There is a US service where you can schedule a fake call and pre-recorded message will play back at you:

Have you ever been in a situation where you wished your cell phone would ring? Maybe you wanted to look extra important or popular on that hot date. Or maybe you just needed an excuse to escape from an unpleasant meeting.

With “The Popularity Dialer”, you can plan ahead. Via a web interface, you can choose to have your phone called at a particular time (or several times). At the elected time, your phone will be dialed and you will hear a prerecorded message that’s one half of a conversation. Thus, you will be prompted to have a fake conversation and will easily fool those around you.

Sounds like a fun hack, or maybe you could utilize this in your life?
