About the wrench puzzle

I finally realised what really made me uncomfortable with this puzzle. If you yourself try to call the pidgin brothers, they dont answer the phone, but only play a pre-recorded message. So how come they answer the phone call from the hotel guy? Any thoughts?

Because the manager reports some paranormal activity.

Good point. So by chance they picked up the phone and then he could tell them?

Maybe they didn´t and he just left a message for them on their answering machine?

Because the signals were strong that night. So they knew somebody was calling to report a paranormal activity.

Shouldnt i be able to do the same?

Hehehe. Good one! Maybe one only needs to have a sincere paranormal problem and they pick up when there are the right signals

Maybe your character doesn´t leave a message because (s)he doesn´t have anything paranormal to report (it´s not your hotel afterall).

Shouldnt be s call by Franklin paranormal enough?

Or maybe they don’t come because a global game state variable isn’t set yet?

Sorry, forth-walling again…

Franklin is only capable of paranormal obsceneties, somehow.

The pigeon brothers were at home and they just screen calls using the answering machine. A lot of people do that.
