I’ve Been Bad
As I found out later, instead of the user’s number, I dialed (xxx) xxx-0314. Yep, that’s right… today’s date. Don’t ask me why. My mind works in mysterious ways when you wake me up at 1:30 in the morning.
So I dial this number, and a woman answers the phone. That took me by surprise, because I was calling a guy. Keep in mind I have just been rudely awakened by my pager, and cannot think straight.
Me: (deep in thought. Why does Doug talk like a woman?
Well, I haven’t talked to him in a long time, maybe it really is Doug. A lot of guys have high-pitched voices, it’s no big deal).
- Hello, I am returning a support call, is this Doug?
Woman: (starts yelling) You have misdialed. It’s 1:30 in the morning (continues yelling)
(I get scared and hang up on the woman)
(I check what I just dialed. Dang. “0314”?)
In retrospect, I probably shouldn’t have called her “Doug”…
