1. Phone was unlocked, it was a pocket dial

Sounds like the real thing, it happens a lot and to most of us. “My pocket likes you or it was my butt who is to blame” Depending on your chemistry or reputation with the person you called accidentally, you can add or delete such lines.

2. Text Back and Say “called by mistake”

Things get a little simpler when you accidentally call someone and that someone doesn’t answer to your call then. Just drop a message that you called by mistake, no elaborative clarification and delineation required.

3. Blame the kid- It’s my niece or nephew who called

You don’t have to feel bad about it at all; kids often do this on purpose or maybe not.

4. Finger Slipped, accidentally pressed the call button

“Accidentally pressed the call button”, you may add if required, “Was searching the forward funny joke you sent few days back” This excuse is best when you have recently communicated with that person or if ever even in last few months.

5. Blame the WhatsApp

It is always safe to blame the technology for your accidental blunders. After excusing yourself for the call you made accidentally to the person, call again at least twice and keep mum. This excuse is best in case of old friends, mean friends or pure odd people like your boss or teachers.

6. My granny messed up again

Yesterday, for fun sake I taught my granny about the WhatsApp thing, so she was practicing her hand on sending text but instead pressed the call button. This really works, at least for me it did, when actually my mother called my dentist four times in a row while doing her graduation in WhatsApp, jokes apart, along with the call, she actually forwarded some random clicks also while getting her hands on experience with WhatsApp.
