(I got my first cell phone when I was 15. The first month of having it, I got a battery of calls from the owner of the previous number. Being a kid, I was pretty blunt in telling them that no, I was not an elderly woman named Rose. I still got the random call over the years, but they eventually stopped happening. Recently, I started getting calls from the same business number, and a recent voice mail asking for Rose tipped me off. They called when I was on my lunch break recently)
Me: Hello?
Caller: Hello, we’re calling to confirm your appointment for this Friday-
Me: *cuts them off* I don’t have an appointment this Friday. I think this is a wrong number.
Caller: *pauses, then laughs* I didn’t think you sounded like an 80 year old woman. This is [my number], correct? Rose put this down as her number a few weeks back. She must’ve put an old number down.
Me: That’s hilarious. I use to get calls for her all the time when I first got this phone.
Caller: When was that?
Me: Uh, almost a decade ago.
Caller: *pauses* I’ll give her daughter a call to make sure she gets to her appointment. And to ask her to remind her mother of what her ACTUAL phone number is.
(I’ve gotten two more calls since from other doctor offices. Sigh)
