Doesn’t Get The Mechanics Of A Wrong Number

| UK | Right | July 14, 2014

(I’m a school science technician. I’ve never worked with cars. I am definitely not a mechanic. I answer my personal mobile phone.)

Me: “Hello?”

Caller: “Hello. I’d like to book a road-worthiness test.”

Me: “Oh, sorry, you’ve got the wrong number. This happens to me quite frequently. I must have a similar number to a garage.”

Caller: “Oh. Well, you know, I’ve got a whole fleet of vehicles that need testing.”

Me: “I’m afraid that doesn’t change the fact I am not a garage. I’m sorry.”

Caller: “Oh.”

(Extended silence.)

Caller: “But I have lots of vehicles that need testing.”

Me: “I’m still not a mechanic. Sorry. Good luck.”

(I hung up, hoping he wouldn’t call back. He didn’t, luckily!)
