    Reminds me of the time some security company called. Guy said, “How you feeling today?”
    I said, “Safe”, and hung up.

    We used to get calls for a theater and people would ask what’s playing. I’d get so annoyed I started making up movie titles and times.


    If I were Opal, I would have told him exactly where to go. snerk…………

    Hyacinth Bucket (Pronounced Boo-KAY) has the same problem, a Chinese takeout place has a close number. She even complained to the Chinese Embassy about it.

    I used to get calls for a dentist who had a similar phone number. I couldn’t understand why because my outgoing message said, “I’m sorry I can’t come to the phone – I’m feeding my pet boa constrictor.”

    Finally, I visited the dentist’s office (a few blocks from my home). I told the receptionist that my outgoing message didn’t sound like a dentist’s message. The receptionist asked me to com into the waiting room where I saw several cages of boa constrictors..

    Our phone number was one digit off from the number of the Buckhorn, a local tavern. Lots of interesting calls on Saturday night — mostly on the order of
    “Is my husband Bill there?”
    “No, you have…”
    “You lying !#^$*. Tell that *&$^% to kick that !#$^$ floozy off his &#$(%# lap and get his cheating *%#%$ home!”

    Wow, now that’s stupidity! What’s next, calling up the Nigerian embassy because some dark skinned young men are playing music too loud?

    For a couple of years I answered the phone with “Telephone…” instead of “Hello?”
    Kind of stopped callers in their tracks.

    Our number used to be a gas station’s. We’d get calls like this – Can you jump me?

    And, it’s one digit different than an auto dealer’s. People are always surprised that we don’t have a service department. I eventually took to telling them to be more careful and hit the 1 instead of the 4. You’d think they’d get a clue when the phone was answered “hello” instead of “business name.”
