Back when I was a swinging single gal-about-town, I would sometimes find myself in the middle of a not-so-great date, wishing I had made arrangements with a friend for "The Emergency Phone Call."
I know you know what I'm talking about.
Now, thanks to the magic of the World Wide Web and the hard work of some bright young people (who else has time to do this? It took me AND my boyfriend an hour and a half last night just to connect the dvd player to the cable box), The Emergency Phone Call has gone high-tech.
Created to assuage uncomfortable situations and upgrade your cellular reputation, Popularity Dialer allows you to send yourself a phone call. Simply enter your number, choose the day and time you wish to be buzzed, and pick the type of conversation that will best serve your situation.
Fair warning: the site only allows five free calls to the same number. So use them wisely and for situations where perhaps it's best not to have to explain why you may need "The Emergency Phone Call."
Myself, I'm partial to the gushing personal review. Who needs daily affirmations when you can schedule a call to tell you just how terrific you are?
