A Minor Gripe

To THAT "Wrong Number" Idiot out there,

Look, I'll admit it : I'm not perfect.

Yeah.. that's right *nods* - sometimes I dial in the wrong number into my phone.
However, when I find that the person who picks up the phone is not the person I am looking for, I will just apologise as best I can in a friendly, polite manner and put down the phone promptly....

I will also make it a point to look at the (wrong) phone number that I had just dialed and make sure that I do NOT accidentally redial that particular number.

Some person out there, however, has decided that this is just not his style.


Yeah, YOU.
You know who you are.

It really does NOT help that:
  • You were calling (repeatedly) at midnight when I was trying to sleep,
  • You kept asking "Hey, what's your name?", "Tell me your name", "Where is this that I am calling?" x10 although I informed you that I did not feel comfortable telling you (look, bub, call me weird but I don't like making small talk and telling personal details to STRANGERS over the phone),
  • At first I thought you just didn't understand me because you don't really understand English, but by the fourth call, I was exasperated to find that you speak perfect (but heavily accented) English that the Queen would approve of, and
  • You call AGAIN the next morning! - TWICE! - and STILL insisting that I tell you my name and asking for your friend, which I had already explained CANNOT BE CONTACTED AT THIS NUMBER BECAUSE IT IS MINE AND NOT YOUR FRIEND'S!
Did your mother drop you on the head when you were a baby or something??

Have a good life, where ever you are.
... but please do live it far, far away from me and my phone.

    you know you can make a police report and get that guy in trouble.

    Yeah... I suppose I could...
    (even if he didn't do the proverbial "huffing and lewd noises" that usually come with unwanted calls from mysterious strangers at midnight)

    ... but as long as he doesn't call again, I'll consider it as giving him a second chance at outgrowing his idiotic ways in the near future.

    If he doesn't outgrow it, then let's just all pray that Darwin's law will come into play somehow.

    Yeah, you said it man!

    May the Gods Of the Mobile Phone World set some form of righteous vengence upon him...
    ... Hmmmmm, although I think that he would probably enjoy a girl doing the same thing to him.

    Ok. Scratch that.

    It'll just have to be the hefty bill then.

    Aiks! What a weirdo. I always get wrong number on my mobile so nowadays if I can't recognise the number, I don't even say hello unless I can recognise the other person's voice.

    Yeah .... *sigh* ... tell me about it!

    I should have known better than to pick up a number I don't recognize...

    ...but he kept ringing and ringing, so I thought "Aiyah, I'll just tell this poor fool that he got the wrong number so he will stop thinking that he can contact his friend/ that girl who he tried to pick up at the bar but gave him a fake number"

    i guess he must have too much free time so he called repeatedly!!!!

    Yeah... definately.


    So irritating.
    Thank goodness he hasn't called again.
