You know the situation. You’re out one night, trying to meet a cutie, when someone you’re not interested in tries to make a move. Maybe it’s a dance move, maybe they try to buy you a drink. And then it just keeps getting worse. They ask for your number, but you don’t know what to do. You can’t just say “no” because that’s considered “rude,” and it may make said dude angry. But the thing is, you don’t actually want to give this person your number. What’s a girl to do?

Well, apparently, the answer is to give out the Mary Sue Rejection Hotline, a fake hotline that will go to a voicemail or text back a response that lays it all out on the line.

The hotline’s number is (646) 926-6614, so you can start giving this out to creeps in place of your actual number.

When the person calls this number, they’ll be met with a voice that says,

And if the person texts the number, the Mary Sue Rejection Hotline will reply an hour later with the same message.

This is like the grown-up version of the rejection hotline we used during the Y2K years. So next time someone’s making you uncomfortable and asks for your phone number, just give them ole Mary Sue’s number. She’ll reject them with grace and class, and do all the dirty work for you.
