    I had a call like that once...one of my coworkers had just moved to a town about 45 minutes away and I got a call from her cell phone company asking for her. I asked them about it and they said that my number was on file as hers. Since this was before the cell-phone number switcheroo law took place, I don't understand how a local cell phone dealer wouldn't know the difference between pre-fixes for different providers locally.
    I asked her if she'd given my number out as her new number after she had moved, she said no, but I wouldn't put it past her. Either that, or it was one helluva mix up...

    I'm reading a book on ancient secret societies called Holy Blood, Holy Grail. Apparently there's some big secret regarding the holy grail, Jesus' crucifixtion, and other stuff. These secret societies are responsible for causing wars, promoting kings, and manipulating world religions and politics.

    Perhaps your Mennonites are part of that, and were about to make Mike Money president of Sri Lanka. But you told them they have the wrong number, and now you are out. Which I guess is a good thing for those poor Sri Lankans. :D

    :bag:

    Nope, you're still the Undersecratary in the Department of the Eastern Regional Council of Demographic Statistical Data Collection and Animal Control of Sri Lanka. They had to merge a couple of Departments during the recent wave budget cuts.


    You didn't get the memo?

    Oh, and the current president is mad at you, Mike. He says you have been slacking on your TPS reports. So if you could get on that, that would be greeeeat.

  14. heh, I had a call earlier this week that went like this:

    Her: "How time just flies"

    Me:"uhh hello?"

    Her: "God how long has it been? 5-6 years since we talked last?"

    Me:"...who are you calling for"

    Her:"What are you talking about Mark? Its me, Marie!"

    Me:"...I think you have the wrong number..."

    Her:"This is 650-**** right, Mark?

    Me:"Yea, but this isn't Mark."

    Her:"oh oops hahahah sorry well is Mark in?"

    Me:"There is no mark that lives here"

    Her:"...Well according to the phonebook, he lives there"

    Me getting very frustrated:"Look, There is no Mark here, I am gonna hang up now"

    Her:"WAIT!"

    *Click*

    Good News Mike! According to rumours circulating about the capital, your luck may change. If, the Undesecratary's Department of the Eastern Regional Council of Demographic Statistical Data Collection and Animal Control merges (as per the reccomendation of the Senate select Subcommittees) with the Bureau of Internal Railroad Management and Procurement, and the Social Insurance Land Management Bureau in accordance with the Railroad Retirement and Railroad Unemployment Insurance Acts you'll be about 26th.
