10:22am Ring Ring Me: Hello? Other end: Is this a liquor store?… - a world of possibility

Ring Ring

Me: Hello?
Other end: Is this a liquor store?
Me: No, but what number are you calling?
Other end: 301.___.4____ (my number)
Me: That is this number, but this is not a liquor store, it's a house. Sorry. (I giggle)
Other end: Oh *click*



I guess it runs in the family. My parents have a phone line on which people call to pay for speeding tickets from Florida, along with numerous other wrong number calls.

I have gotten MANY wrong numbers this year, but this was the most amusing.


Ring Ring
Me: Hello?
Other end: Is this who I just called about the liquor store? (not exact words)
Me: Yea
Other end: This is hotel ____ (something, I can't remember, I was too busy laughing in my head)

Basically she called to tell me that my number was listed as a liquor store in their directory local numbers. I then ask if it is through a computer or in a book. Finding out it is a book, I ask how old it is because they may want to have it updated. I also explain that if I called her, the caller ID would say my name.

She just wanted me to know and that I should check with the phone company (or something like that). How is that going to fix the listing in her book? I dunno, people are funny. I do thank her for letting me know so that for future reference when people think I'm a liquor store I'll know why.

OK, off to get clean and then be social with my family. We are having a gathering at our house for the big event . . . Mother's Day.

I hope everyone is well.

I don't know why, but I'm still laughing.

I just get calls for Sheqwanda or Carlos and stuff, nothing cool like liquor stores. :)

You realize you could easily defraud people by taking their ticket info (name, DL#, address, CC#, etc.)...

Not, of course, that I would condone such a thing...
