College Administrator Tells The World: ‘Call Me’

PHOENIX (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One man’s phone in Phoenix is ringing off the hook – especially since he’s posted his number on the Internet urging everyone to call him.

That’s the scoop from Luke Johnson, a 26-year-old college administrator who began the “Luke Johnson Phone Experiment” about a month ago, when he posted his cell phone number on youtube.com asking people to call him from “anywhere, anytime.”

The number is (602) 435-3694, and ever since Johnson gave it, he’s received more than 7,991 phone calls from as far away as Sweden, Malaysia and Brazil.

Johnson says most people call just to talk for a few minutes, but other folks keep him on the phone for hours.

He says, “The other night a couple of girls kept me on the phone for about an hour. I guess they just wanted to talk.”

Johnson admits he’s gotten some pretty weird calls too, including an old man who called asking if Johnson was ticklish.

Says Johnson: “I was creeped out, but I laughed and told him ‘no, but that sounds like a good time.”’
