If you’ve been following my blog for a couple of years, you may remember that some time ago I was concerned about some odd phone calls to my cell phone. At the time, some lady was calling me a LOT looking for some guy called “Gary” and not believing that she had a wrong number. Apparently she hadn’t seen him for a couple of days and was trying to figure out what happened to him…
I don’t know what happened to Gary then, but I at least know he’s alive now. She’s called me twice this week, again looking for him. (I remember her voice, and it’s from the same 573 area code.) Figured out what the problem is…he has my same phone number, but in the 573 area code, as opposed to mine in the 314 area code. She just needs to dial the area code first…but unfortunately, she seems to keep forgetting that.
So…Verizon Wireless…please stop assigning the same phone number to multiple customers. You’re making stupid, stupid things happen…but on the other hand, at least now I know the end to that story…and so do you!
So…thanks for reading for two years waiting on that “to be continued” cliffhanger, I guess!
