Here’s a way to make a new friend or, at least, have a stranger tell you to leave them the hell alone.

There’s a new trend online where people are texting their “number neighbor” . . . that is, the person whose phone number is one digit different than yours.

Like if your number is 867-5308, you’d text the person whose number is 867-5309.

People are posting screenshots of their text conversations with their number neighbors on social media, and the responses really run the gamut . . . from people having great conversations to people getting cursed out.  (Mashable)


This is just as weird as the challenge where people were stapling bread on trees.
