Fun With Wrong Numbers!

December 3, 2004

This is the first phone call I received this morning:

Me- Hello?

Voice #1- Yeah, the check you wrote my daughter came back insufficient funds.

Me- What?

Voice #1- The check you wrote my daughter came back insufficient funds.

Me- I have no idea what you’re talking about.

Voice #1- Hold on.

Voice #2- The check you wrote my granddaughter came back insufficient funds.

Me- I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Voice #2- Is this Jeff Davis?

Me- No. My name’s Greg. This is my cell phone you’ve called.

Voice #2- Well, Mr. Davis wrote my granddaughter a check and it came back insufficient funds.

Me- And you want me to do what, exactly?

Voice #2- I called the phone number he wrote on the check. 522-7310.

Me- This is 522-7130.

Voice #2- I called 522-7310.

Me- No, you didn’t. If you did, you wouldn’t be talking to me.

Voice #2- Well, this is the number on the check.

Me- No, it’s not. You just told me the phone number was 7310. Is that correct?

Voice #2- Yes.

Me- Well, this is 7130. Why don’t you hang up and try again? Dial it properly and stop annoying me.
