This Just Got Personal

(I am trying to call a woman I don’t know to invite her to a surprise party for a mutual friend.)

Woman: “Hello?”

Me: “Hi. I’m calling for [Name]?”

Woman: “Take me off your d*** list!”

Me: “I’m sorry. Is there a [Name] at this number?”

Woman: “You heard me. I demand that you take me off your list!”

Me: “I think I may have the wrong numb—”

Woman: “Are you taking me off your list?”

Me: “No, I’m just trying to get a hold of [Name]. Do I have the right number?”

Woman: “No! There is no ‘[Name]’ here! I don’t ever want to hear from you again! Put your supervisor on! I want a guarantee that you are taking my number off your list!”

Me: “Okay. This was actually supposed to be a personal call. I just dialed the wrong number.”

Woman: “Never call here again!”

Me: “Yeah, that’s generally how wrong-number calls work.”

(Two weeks after the party, my phone rang.)

Me: “Hello?”

Same Woman: “[Mutual Friend] said you planned her party. Why the h*** didn’t you invite me? I’m her oldest friend.”

Me: “Is this [Name]?”

Same Woman: “Yeah, it is.”

Me: “Sorry. I took you off my list.”
