    (I was sitting at home watching TV. My phone number ends with, let’s say, -1269. The phone number for the bakery ends with -1296. I am constantly getting called by people who think I’m that bakery.)

    Me: “Hello?”

    Dude: “I need the bakery.”

    Me: “I think you have the wrong number.”

    Dude: “Oh, sorry.”

    (He hangs up. Brief pause. Phone rings.)

    Me: “Hello?”

    Same Dude: “Can I get the bakery?”

    Me: “You have the wrong number.”

    (Dude hangs up. Phone rings.)

    Me: “Hello?”

    Same Dude: “I need the bakery.”

    Me: “I think you should check the number…I don’t have a bakery department.”

    Same Dude: “Well, you did this morning!”

    Me: “I meant I’m not [bakery]. I’m just a person sitting at home.”

    (Dude hangs up. Phone rings AGAIN. I glance skeptically at it and finally go over. I don’t say anything.)

    Same Dude: “Hello?”

    Me: *click*

    (He called eight more times that evening. Eventually I just told him we were closed.)
