Last night at about 10pm my phone rang, the caller ID showed that it was an unlisted number. My parents number is unlisted so I figured it was them calling, I answered only to be greeted with a woman launching right into a conversation.
I had ZERO idea who it was but she kept talking and then broke into Spanish. Of course I let this go on for like two minutes… Those are two minutes that I will never get back in my entire life. I don’t know why I let it go on for so long. Secretly I was hoping for her to say something juicy and interesting. Maybe how she just stabbed a guy 57 times with a fork and needs to hide his body or how it burns when she pisses. I wanted something to come about that would make using my time worthwhile. Instead I just kept saying hello and hung up.
What is the deal with people just launching into conversations now? When did that become normal? Ugh…
I guess one of the reasons why I am so bitter about wrong numbers is back when I went to school at Albany I got a random call at like 1 am one night from a girl that just started saying some of the filthiest shit ever. I stopped her a few minutes into her extremely descriptive story asking her if she had the right number, she told me she dialed it randomly. Making it the single greatest wrong number call ever.
So I let her continue… until she uh, I guess finished in more than one sense of the word. This happened at least four more times the spring of my freshman year. Finally I asked her if she wanted to meet and she got really shy about it saying that she could never live up to what she talked about on the phone. She did tell me what quad she lived on and I would occasionally walk through there hoping that maybe I would hear her talking to a friend or something. The wrong number the other night made me think of this story, I always wondered what the girl looked like. Or maybe it is better that I don’t know and have a vision of how she did in my head.
Of course it was probably something gross like a cousin or the one cafeteria worker with a hunchback.
What is the best wrong number call you have ever had?
