PEOPLE whose names begin with ‘A’ get pocket-called a minimum of fifty times a day, it has emerged.
Researchers found that being the first person in someone’s phone book also leads to four-minute long voicemail messages that sounds like the muffled insides of someone’s pocket.
Professor Henry Brubaker of the Institute of Studies said: “We spoke to one man called Aaron, whose phone went off eight times whilst we were chatting to him.
“Each time he answered it, said ‘Hello’ four or five times and then hung up. He hasn’t slept for eight years.”
He added: “The only people who get more pocket calls than ‘A’ names are rappers whose names begin with a number.
“2pac would have gotten so many pocket calls that it would have driven him mad, as would 2 Live Crew if they had a collective phone number.”
“I’ve heard 2 Chainz doesn’t even bother answering his any more.”
