The world’s most suspicious man hung up on the Pope twice, believing it was just a prank call.
Pope Francis called Franco Rabuffi twice to comfort him after Rabuffi had fallen ill. But Rabuffi continued to hang up believing the call was just a joke. Pope Francis is known as "the Cold Call Pope" for intentionally surprising people in need with a phone call to see how they are doing.
Third time was the charm when Rabuffi realized it was indeed Pope Francis who was calling — not an imposter! He apologized to the pope several times.
“I was speechless but Francis came to my rescue, saying that what had happened was funny,” Rabuffi told the Vatican newspaper, l’Osservatore Romano.
