Jon: No, there never was a Peggy here.
Jon: No, I will NOT pretend to be Peggy!
Garfield: I love wrong numbers.

Can I imagine this happening with SpongeBob’s friend Patrick?
Our local weatherman looks like Squidward Tentacles.
Well, that’s a first. Lol
Danny DeVito approves
buy yourself a better phone, Jon. the one you own was popular……back in 1984
Two things come to mind:.First is the episode of Quantum Leap where Sam ends up helping “Buddy Holly” change his ode to his pig, “Piggy Sooie” to “Peggy Sue”..Second, years ago, my husband and I received a late phone call. It turned out to be a wrong number, but somehow we ended up with some great conversation and stayed on the phone for a couple hours.
My favorite wrong number, some years ago:Caller – Is Bill there?Me – You have the wrong number.Caller – I DO NOT!!
When we got our current phone number, we had a caller insist that WE had the wrong phone number since the person he wanted wasn’t picking up the phone.
Awww, come on Jon, give him a few minutes of your time.
And don’t call me Shirley either.
One time a little kid called who kept insisting his friend lived there, he called back so many times I finally stopped answering. After the phone rang like 15 times in a row with no hangups inbetween I unplugged my phone (landline) for a few hours.
I got a text from from someone called Michelle (I think)The text went something like “Mike, Thanks so much for the beautiful boots! Definitely worth the wait, eh? Have a great weekend!”I replied back and told her she had the wrong number. That was a strange day.xxx
I once had a caller that flat out told me that I was lying when I told them that they had dialed the wrong number and that I had no idea who the person they wanted was.
About 15-18 years ago some strange guy called me on New Years Eve and asked for “Bill”..Family was out celebrating so I was alone..I had a few scotch’s in me so I went ahead and played along…(me:)“Yes this is Bill.”..and,in the next 30 minutes, we had a nice back and forth conversation..The dude must have sobered up a little,or, I said something that jogged his memory..he said..“Wait a minute…this ain’t Bill!..Who is this??”…I said..“This is officer Mike of the San Jose Police department..Please don’t dial or drive while intoxicated..You have a good evening.”
When we were in preschool, my best friend, Peter could only remember our phone number (the one he was always phoning) and not his own. When we started getting calls for Peter, we assumed they were for him and re-directed the callers to his phone. Years later we learned that the “Peter” with the same last name as ours lived a few blocks away.
It might be worthwhile to pretend he was Peggy if he could find a way to charge the caller $3.99 per minute!
One time someone called me and asked for someone named Jack. I decided to play along. He was telling me about having his first girlfriend named Bel. I told him I had a girlfriend with the same name. He told me her last name. I told him my girlfriend’s last name was the same. 2 weeks later, he called again saying they broke up. A doorbell came to my house, it was a girl named Bel. She wanted to be my my girlfriend , so I said yes. We’ve been together 5 months now.
