Lately, I've had a strong urge for a stranger to accidentally text me...
It'd be fun, right?
Note the time. Someone's tokin'...
My father (RIP) was doing this back in the 90s. We had a phone number that was very similar to the city hospital across the street from us as well as to one of a popular pizzeria. One year the phone book accidentally put one of our private phone numbers under H&R Block -- tax season was a nightmare. I think my parents got a settlement.
My brothers frequently pretended to take pizza orders that were obviously never delivered.
Anyway, point was we got a LOT of wrong numbers and at some point you do get sick of politely explaining that it's a wrong number. One time a guy called and asked about his wife who was a patient at the hospital. My father said "She's not here, she just left." The guy freaked out and said "BUT SHE'S HAVING A BABY!!"
Another time a guy called and said "Hey man, you got the weeeeeeeed?" and my father being a staunch anti-drug conservative said "No, but I have your number on my caller ID and the police are on their way." The guy said "oh shit" and hung up.
I think it's mean but I can't help but laugh.
some middle aged woman recently sent me a picture of herself saying "i still miss you"
Yeah, dudie, where's the rest of that story???
