An “ear for an ear” with robocall prank

Technology helps man apply a bit of sweet revenge.
“Awakened at 4:33 a.m. Wednesday by a ringing phone, Aaron Titus jumped out of bed in a panic. Maybe something terrible had happened, he thought. Even if nothing was wrong, his heart raced with other considerations: His five children, ages 5 and under, including his week-old daughter, were mercifully still asleep, and he wanted to keep it that way.

In a blurry rush, Titus answered the phone halfway into the second ring, listening in disbelief to an automated caller tell him what he already knew: It was a snow day. School would open two hours late. In other words, he and his family could sleep.”
But Mr. Titus already knew that information before he went to sleep. And now he couldn’t get back to sleep.
So he planned his revenge. The next day, he used an online robocall company to place a call at 4:30 a.m. to the school board and other school officials, “thanking” them for the early morning call, and saying that he hoped his call demonstrated how annoying it was to get such an early call.

"I thought I would share the pain," said Mr. Titus.

Officials agreed that the 4:30 a.m. call was a mistake that won’t happen again.
