    My phone just rang.

    "Hello?"

    "Hi, is Melissa there?"

    "Sorry, you have the wrong number."

    "I do?"

    "Yes"

    "Oh, well do you know Melissa Tierney then?"

    "How would I know her? You have the wrong number."

    :cuckoo:

    I recently had one that went like this:

    "Hello, is Mike there?"

    "No, I'm afraid you have a wrong number."

    "Then why did you answer?"

    "Why did you dial a wrong number?"

    And then I hung up.

    I get those sometimes. My response is "this is the party to whom you are speaking."

    Here's mine:

    "Hi, may I speak to Sam please?"

    (This call came on my cell.)

    "You have the wrong number, dear."

    "But I want to talk to Sam."

    "Yes. And calling him at HIS number might get you what you want."

    "O, c'mon...please?"

    Repeat three times....I swear...from this I was able to learn, you can block a number on a cell.

    Got one! Happened last Wednesday.

    ring ... ring ...
    I look at the phone and sees it's a private number. Thinking it's my mother, I answer.

    "Hello."

    "Uhm yeah ... someone there called me from that number." (older guy. Kind of a sexy voice I recall )

    "They did? Really? Who am I speaking with?"

    pause ....
    "This is Justin."

    "I'm sorry, but we don't know a Justin and I don't believe anyone here called you."

    "Okay, well someone there rang me phone."

    "I'm sorry sir ... it must have been a misdialed call."

    Another pause .....
    "Uhm ... okay."

    Bye!

    Some woman keeps phoning me and asking, "have you seen Mike Hunt". Every time I tell her, "not yet", but still she calls and asks. :confused:

    Unrelated, sort-of...

    Personally, I love the long messages you get when someone butt-dials you... You know, where the subtle butt movements cause your phone to dial either a speeddial number or one completely strange number, unbeknownst to you of course....

    So far I havent heard anything interesting, yet...

    You should ask her what it is Mike is supposed to be hunting.
