The Mary Sue Rejection Hotline actually spells out what's wrong with the whole situation: That the person who received the number made someone feel uncomfortable at the prospect of turning them down.
Please learn to take no for an answerand respect women’s emotional and physical autonomy.
K THANKKS."If they text said number, they get this same message in writing.
When someone you're not into asks for your number, sometimes saying no isn't that simple.
Some just take that as an invitation to try to change your mind.
, The Rejection Hotline® (and our 200 other Humor Hotlines) had a great run – 10 years, 475 Million phone calls, etc.
– but we were forced to sell off the 2500 phone numbers and shut down the company in 2013 (long story).
But it's all in good fun and we hope those on the receiving end can look at it like Curt did: The dating scene is full of people who can't take a hint or can't take "no" for an answer (and many who apparently can't take showers, can't brush their teeth, or can't seem to go out in social settings without awkwardly embarrassing themselves).
( Anyway, the Got Rejection Hotline exists as a simple alternative to uncomfortable situations and it is a public service to both the rejector and to the rejectee.
We would like to take this opportunity to officially reject you by this rejection hotline.
