He’s Single, And I Have His Number
I had to find the person and ask for my device back, so I called its number. A male voice answered, and the following conversation ensued.
I: Hi, can I have my Blackberry back?
Guy: Excuse me????
I: Well I believe you have my Blackberry. Can I have it back please?
Guy: Who are you?
I: This is Goldie. I’m calling my cell phone number.
Guy (sounding really worried at this point) Nononono, my name is Lyle. I live with my mom...
I (cutting Lyle off): Is this 123-4567?
Lyle: No, this is 120-4567.
I: Oops, sorry. Wrong number. Bye.
In retrospect, I should have heard Lyle out. He sounded like he wanted to tell me more about himself.
