Taken for a ride

The man who dialed the radio station studio had done it by mistake.

He:  So... this is not the taxi service?
Me:  No, but I can give you a ride if you can wait till I get off work.
He:  Oh.  That's okay.

I like wrong numbers.  :-)

Ain't it the truth!

Some of the best conversations I've had in my life have been with folks that dialed me up wrong.


I guess I'm weird, but when I get a wrong number I don't do the "You're a moron, and check the number again!" thing.

Nope! I always ask what number they were trying to dial, and what the purpose of their call was. I mean, I'm kinda' like a professional receptionist or something, I guess.

I'll swear, I get in to some of the most interesting conversations.

Heck, I've got a buddy in Mississippi that got a wrong number call once from a dude in prison. They talked a long time, and the guy started calling him regularly. Seems my buddy had a very good influence on the inmate,'s a long story.

Sometimes God does junk like that.
