Just yesterday:
(Very friendly elderly man talking) “Hello? Oh, hi, your number called me earlier this afternoon.”
Me: “.. Hi! May I know who’s calling?”
“Charlie. I missed your call around 12.30 pm today.”
“Oh, that’s odd. Charlie, I don’t think my dog would’ve called.”
(Chuckles on the other end) “Which neighbourhood does this number belong to?”
“B_____ D___”
“Oh, I don’t think I know anybody in that neck of the woods.”
“Yeah, I was at a work meeting around that time. You have a good weekend!”

I work in a casino restaurant in Iowa, and about six months ago I got this phone call:

Me: “[Restaurant name], this is [name], how may I help you?”

“Yeah, is this [repeats rest. name]?”


“Oh, good. What time do you guys close?”

“We close at 10 o’clock.”

“Oh, so if I make it there in the next thirty minutes I’ll be good, right?”

“Well, no, because it’s already 9:45, and we stop seating at 10, so you’d only have fifteen minutes to get here. You’d have to go to [other snack area] to get any food service.”

“But you close at 10.”

“Yes, we do.”

“So it’s only 7:45, so why are you saying you close in fifteen minutes?”

“No…it’s 9:45…”

“This is [repeats restaurant name again], right?”

“Yes it is…This is [restaurant name] located in [town], Iowa.”


And then he hung up. A funny wrong number my mom got once was right after she’d gotten a cell phone, and this lady called her screaming to never speak to her son like that again. Turns out the other woman had misdialed a number of some kid that was being mean to her son.
