Wrong Number

Sunset and Phone Line, Long Island, NY

I get wrong numbers from time to time like everyone else. However, some wrong numbers are really very shy men. Here’s how a wrong number call often plays out:

The phone rings and I answer in my sexy voice. Despite already saying my name they ask who is it and I tell them again. For whatever reason they get nervous. Often they mutter that they were calling for someone else and end the call. Sometimes they apologize profusely for bothering me.

Sometimes I can catch them before they hang up and ask who they were calling for. This flusters them. I don’t mean to rattle their nerves; instead I hope that getting them talking will calm them down. It occasionally works and I get a call. Mostly though, they say they don’t know and hang up.

One time I turned my number into a wrong number. I was calling a restaurant to check their hours and they didn’t accept blocked caller ID. No problem I thought as I redialed adding the code to unblock my number. I got an error message but figured I had dialed incorrectly. I was planning to eat there later in the day so I didn’t bother calling again.

Several hours later I got a panicked email from the main office. They said clients were trying to call me and getting this restaurant instead. In a flash I realized what I had done. Instead of unblocking my caller ID I had pressed the code to forward my phone to another number. Fixing the problem only took a minute but I had no way of knowing had many people had called the restaurant while trying to call me.

Mr. Radical and I decided to eat at there for dinner despite me feeling embarrassed. They had no way of knowing I was the cause of all their pranks. Normally the staff is friendly but that day practically everyone was grumpy. I resolved not to make that mistake again.

    Hey Vixen,

    Great story but I love your blog anyway. As my favorite writer, Woody Allen once said: Is sex dirty? Only if you’re doing it properly!

    Love & kisses Sadie xxxx
