show podcast: calling out a bully

I did a big One Direction contest last week, and in case you were unaware- those fans get some kinda crazy trying to get tickets. E-mails, angry phone calls, begging tweets... all of it is to be expected, but I didn't think I'd have to fight off some bully kids who were pretending to be me/the station.

One girl was complaining about how the station called her at 11pm, told her she won tickets, but then didn't give them to her. Obviously the station isn't going to call at 11pm, so I asked for the number.... then I called it.

[There's actually a lot more to this, but I had to cut it down for on air purposes. They whined about how it wasn't them, tried to get another girl to admit to it... got mad when I hinted that they'd be punished for this forever, and were basically just terrible little teenagers.]

WHY ARE THEY SO MEAN NOWADAYS?!? I mean, prank calls happened back when I was growing up too, but all the online stuff that goes on with this is not okay. Ever since the Emblem 3 BS I haven't been able to let it go down, so I did one little thing to hopefully stop at least a few people from being a-holes.

Some may say I should stay out of it and leave 'em alone cuz they're just kids... but I'm not into just letting these humans grow up thinking it's okay to be a terrible person.
