Rob ended up being the friendliest guy I'd ever had the pleasure of speaking with over the phone (trust me, there've been plenty of mean ones) and answered some of my burning questions about what it's like to work for a company that gets inundated with calls from Drake fans.
"Some of our workers here really like Drake, so they put it together pretty early on when the calls started coming in," said Rob, chuckling at the hilarity of the whole situation. I asked him what people would do when they'd call, assuming not all of them were writers on a mission to unravel Drake-centric mysteries.
"Oh, people would call us and sing to us, ask for Drake, you name it.. Some people actually sing beautifully. Most people are very, very polite... very big, great fans of Drake from way back in the day." Rob went on to say that they typically receive fifteen calls a day from fans. So really, not exactly making that hotline bling.
It seems Rob and his staff are taking it all in stride, though, and Rob simply asks his call-takers to remain professional. So, there you have it. Mystery solved. 1-800 HOTLINEBLING leads to a company that can help you with your credit card woes. Anyway, brb, gotta make a call to 867-5309 now.
