Wrong Numbers

Posted 12 June 2003 - 03:01 PM

i just got a call for someone looking for a phone escort service.

we get SO many wrong number calls... several every day, and some of them are really funny.

so here is the official "tell holly about your weirdest wrong number stories because she's bored today" thread.

;)

I used to get prank calls all the time when My sister lived with me... no longer, I hardly ever answer the phone because I fear creditors calling. ;)

I get about 1/2 a dozen fax machines (various locations, mainly Colorado) calling a day. Does that count?

PS: I've faxed them back & they still call. Think I should sue 'em for Fax-Harassment?

this one time this old man called me when i was at work, so my machine picked up and he left a message about how he was worried about me (even though he kept referring to me as Henry, and my answering machine clearly states that my name is NOT Henry) because i hadn't called him in a long time. something about how Henry moved and didn't tell anyone. baha. Henry tried to didtch his Gramps, but Gramps trackes him down!!!! no, wait... Gramps got the WRONG FREEKIN NUMBER!! ghjkfwgljkheasdfg#^7

then for a while i got calls from, i assume, telemarketers. because only telemarketers are stupid enough to call, let the machine pick up, and then stay on the line for 5 $#%&^%!!! MINUTES talking to friends in the background.

and ben, we're talking about weird calls you've recieved, not made. that soundboard thing is so 1998. get with the times.

At my new house, I get an answering service for a guy name Bill. It is basically a dating service, and all I have to do to hear his messages is press 2 :) Many a fun times have been had with that.... Next time, I will try to record a couple of them for you :)
