(Newser) – After waking to a 4:30am robocall announcing a snow delay, a Maryland dad was fuming—so he decided to make a robocall of his own. The father of five found an online robocalling company and recorded a message to be sent at 4:30am yesterday to school officials, the Washington Post reports. The message was 29 seconds long.

“This is a Prince George's County School District parent, calling to thank you for the robocall yesterday at 4:30 in the morning. I decided to return the favor,” Aaron Titus’s message said. It also noted that he already knew about the delay before going to bed. Eight of 19 recipients picked up their phones. “I definitely appreciate his creativity,” said a school board member. District phone calls won't be coming so early from now on.
