A Further Quirk

It seems lately I’ve been getting more calls from numbers I don’t recognize. I usually don’t answer them, but I’m dying to know who is calling. The Reverse Phone Directory doesn’t help when the calls are from cell phones and I’m much too nervous to call them back and ask who they are.

Really, I’m left with just the one solution: have a friend in Ohio call the number to find out who it is.

He’s surprisingly willing to do this and is surprisingly good at it. So far none of the numbers have been anything but misdials, but I keep hoping that one day he’ll call a number back to find I’ve been awarded millions of dollars.

He’ll get a slight cut, of course.

    Good thing you have my number in your phone or I would never get ahold of you!

    You can keep your money. I am only doing this in the hopes that one of these numbers is someone who is really, really angry at you.

    Or just not go to the trouble at all. If they can't be bothered to leave a message, why should you go to the trouble of finding out who they are?

    Man, I'm just too nosey! I've GOT to know who it is or it'll drive me nuts!

    I agree. It drives me crazy when I get calls from people whose numbers I don't recognize.

  6. HorizonPurple says:

    I never call back. I don't know what I'd say- "Hi you called me and I dont' know who you are"?

    I let it go, they're all wrong numbers anyways.
