Hoping for a Call
"I am the assistant manager at Patti's Hallmark here in Vista, California. Brandon [Call] came in today with his daughter to get a Webkinz. [Editor: No, we don't know what a Webkinz is, either.] At first I didn't know for sure if it was him, until he talked to me! That's when I knew it was him! He was extremely nice. I didn't ask him for an autograph or anything, but I'm sure he'll be back in my store in the future. I hope so." (Posted: July 2007)
Yes, the Wink Makes That Last Comment Sound Much Less Mean
"A long, long time ago, I was a big fan of [Brandon Call], and found out where he lived. I [rang] at the doorbell, but unfortunately nobody answered. I never really got over the fact that all of his autographs were printings and not real. By now he should have lots of time answering his fan mail personally ;)." (Posted: February 2007)
His Mom's Not Going to Like This One

Told You So
"I am his mother, and whomever said he is a jerk is very wrong. My son is as nice as they come." (Posted: January 2006)

Right on Target

Yes, But Did He Rotate the Tires?
"I met Brandon Call when he was working at a gas station in San Diego, California. The gas station is also a car wash and you can get an oil change. I found out later that he and his family own it. He was nice and signed an autograph picture." (Posted: October 2000)
