Somewhere, someone in my neck of the universe has given a few colleges and other places the wrong phone number and that phone number happens to be mine! For the last 7 days when I answer my phone it goes like this:
salesperson: May I please speak with Benniffer?* This is George from a certain online college.
me: I'm sorry but no one here with the name Benniffer lives here and never has.
salesperson: Do you know when Beniffer will be in?
me: You have the wrong number. No such person in this house has that name!!!!
salesperson: Let me give you the number and then you tell me if I dialed wrong...it's 555-555-5555
(of course all the fives are the ones that come into my house)
me: yes that is my number my name is MomTo4KidsNy**. No one here has the name Beniffer so you need to loose MY number before I turn you in! If your number shows up on my caller id I will file a harrasement charge against you because I can legally proove that no one at this phone number is named Benniffer.
salesperson: I'm sorry I bothered you and I will take your number out of our system.
me: Good! *click*
And one would think George got the clue. Well in truth George got the clue. However George's coworkers Barb, Linda, Ken, Barbie, G.I. Joe still call my house looking for Bennifer. However the phone number on my caller ID keeps changing. And I'm logging every single number that calls my house looking for Bennifer.
And since I started to write this post I have had this exact same conversation 6 times with six diffrent people from the same damn place! I now have my phone on Do Not Disturb! So go ahead and try to call again because you will get my voicemail and which case you will not be able to leave a message because I turned off the option to leave a message!
*I changed the name to protect the innocent ones who might have the same name but is not the one who gave out my number.
** I used my blog name here just because I used my FULL name....first, middle and last name on the phone and I'm not going to do THAT here.
*** I also made up the names of those calling me because when they said their name I blocked it out.
I find it wierd that someone pulled a bunch of numbers out of the air for a phone number and they happen to be mine. Too bad I don't know a Bennifer.
****I was about to click on publish post when my caller id started flashing. I picked up the phone and the boys are fighting over who gets to talk to SpiderMan******* Yea I'm evil like that:)
