When you wake someone up at 2:30am and you don't hear the same series of barking & clicking noises that pass for your language, it's safe to assume that you've dialed a wrong number. I thought this was universally true until last night when I received no less than 6 such calls within the span of 2 minutes. Area code 252 = North Carolina kooks.

(Well, it might have been Somalia, country code 252.)

Look, if you get a wrong number the first time, it will be a wrong number the second time unless you change one of the digits!!!! People, I swear.

I once had a lady call me three times and each time I told her she had the wrong number. On the last call she said she couldn't possibly have the wrong number because she was hitting redial.

People suck.

Had a woman call me three times and the third time I said that she had the wrong number, she asked if I was sure. Hmm, let me check my life real quick. Um, yeah, I'm sure.

I get collect calls from the prison regularly. And yes, they are dialing the wrong number. :-)

I get phone calls on my cell phone for Joanne. They're always old people from Georgia. They wanna know how Joanne's mother is doing.

I tell them Joanne changed her number. They ask me if I can give them her new number.

How do you explain to old people that they are likely the reason that Joanne changed her phone number? And, no, I can't give you the new number because she didn't give it to me either?
