Dear Poll: Have You Ever Purse Called Someone?

Have you ever looked at your phone and had an anxiety attack after realizing you had accidentally called someone while your phone was in your pocket or hand bag? Luckily I haven't, but it has happened to a few friends of mine causing irreconcilable damage. Whether you've been caught bad mouthing your best friend or sneaking around behind your boyfriend's back, what I want to know is . . .

I'm a little paranoid about it so I check my call log from time to time just to make sure. Ive never had my phone call other people but other peoples phones have called me before. Ive caught a guy cheating on me because I called him and he meant to press the hang up button but he pressed the answer button instead. Other than that its only been muffle sounds or small random conversations. I try not to be nosy so i just hang up.

i've always had a flip phone so i haven't purse called anyone, but i always get 'pocket called' from my dad. he thinks he's really cool so he's always getting new phones and he never knows how to work them and he always accidently calls me!!! he'll call later on and say "Hey, i noticed i called you twice today. sorry!"

I've never called anyone accidentally, but my phone has a problem that when I use the headset, it won't hang up at the end of a call. I accidentally left a 5 minute voicemail for my boss and she could hear me swearing at traffic! We laughed about it-- good thing she's cool!

yes, but my phone was actually on the passenger seat of my car, so i'm not really sure how it dialed my friend's number. i must have pressed the wrong button when taking it out of my purse or something. the next day my friend was like "i got a voicemail from you singing." lol i apparently had been singing along to a CD in my car and that's what got recorded. oops.

once, a friend of my boyfriends called him by accident, incidentally he happened to be talking about ME and making up some stupid rumor (all of his friends talk about me for some reason, i'm like the celebrity of his neighborhood--dont ask me why!) anyway he went on and on, making up some ridiculous story. needless to say he got his ass kicked the next day, aah satisfaction

i used to have a phone that would call 911 if you held down the 9 button for a few seconds. i guess i did that once because 911 called me back to ask if i was ok.

lol fluffyhelen :) My phone is a flip phone... so nope never done it. My sister's phone has called me several times. It's really funny :) Though I do have a funny cell phone story. My S/O is my speed dial #2. On my mom's phone her speed dial #2 is my dad. Well, we have the same phones... she used mine and accidently called my S/O (instead of my dad)... she was like 'hello?...?" and he thought it was me (b/c of his caller ID) and then didn't recognize the voice... it was hilarious!!! They were going back and forth ... "Who is this?" :ROTFL:

Fluffyhelen - YIKES!! That's probably the worst! Once I sat on my phone while I was in the car arguing with my husband.. and it called one of our mutual friends. Our friend heard our entire argument! How embarrassing!

I haven't, but my ex boyfriend used to pocket call me a lot. I'd be listening to him gas up the car, watch TV or whatever. I'd be SCREAMING into the phone, but he never heard me. :D

Yes I've purse called someone and it was horrible. I had this little Nokia phone and I immediately bought a flip phone after that.

it's happened to me several times when i forget to lock the keypads of my phone, i get in trouble not with what ive been talking about when that happens but with the length of the phonecalls that it makes. for some reason, the friggin keys choose the overseas numbers to call instead of the local ones. and THAT is how i get in trouble with purse calls!

my friend alen always complains that people call him all the time because he's always first on their list. at least that's his excuse for not picking up my calls. ;) i always wind up doing this to my husband, and it's usually when we're walking somewhere together. he'll take his phone out of his pocket, sigh, and go, "where's your phone?" my purse has dialed him. he did this to me the other night, so i guess turnabout is fair play. i just got a RIZR so i'm praying that will not happen anymore. i get so frustrated with the key lock that i never use it.

I get this done to me all of the time because my name starts with an A, and I am usually the first in the phonebook. I have done it where i was leaving a voicemail and forgot to turn off the call! I hate those!
