This morning, our phone starting ringing at around 1:15 AM and it woke both my husband and I up. Our caller ID said it was from “Anonymous.” When she started leaving a message, we both listening intently and quickly realized she dialed the wrong number.
Yes, we do have a home phone with a voicemail. Rare, I know. Everyone has a cell phone these days. My husband has cell phone. It is nice to have a home phone because I am the stay at home parent.
Here is the voicemail we received at 1:15 AM:
As we listened to the message, I knew right away, I wanted to record this and share on my blog and on youtube. I feel bad for the woman and I hope she finds the guy. She sounds hurt and I hope she finds the answers she is looking for. She obviously dialed the wrong number and I hope she did not give the authorities our number!
We believe things happen for a reason, so not two minutes after we received the wrong number message, my husband’s work called wanting him to come in to cover a shift. I think it helped that he and I were already awake and he was able to answer the phone without sounding too “I just woke up” sounding voice.
Have you ever had a wrong number message? Have you ever dialed the wrong number and left a message?
My husband has dialed the wrong number before and left a message. When he went to leave a message, it was a woman’s voice on the voicemail which tipped me off that he may have dialed the wrong number. However, I quickly pointed it out to him and he was able to dial the correct number. I am glad I was paying attention because it was regarding hours at work.
I have also dialed the wrong number. It certainly is embarrassing and I usually realize my mistake after I hang up.
Do you have any funny stories to share about calling the wrong number or receiving a voicemail for someone else?
