I'M SOOO DUMB! (in a non-negative way)

Okay, for the last week or so I have been trying to reach my host. I have called tons of times, left messages, and emailed. I was a border-line stalker! LoL.

Well, I got a call this evening from the number I have been calling and the lady says I have the wrong number, no person by that name lives there, etc....

So I got upset thinking that my host gave me a "fake" phone number! I was ready to call a past host to get her my current host's phone number....but before I did that I looked over the little information slip that my host filled out. When I realized what I did, I felt like an idiot.

Let me explain....since I live on an overseas Military base....the telephone system is a little strange. All personal phone numbers start with 227 and all the on-base organizations (schools, stores, library, work phone numbers, etc.) start with 225. [I hope that made sense.]

Well, I was calling 227-5504...when I looked at the slip....the number was
225-5504...HER WORK NUMBER! I mistaked it for her home number and dialed 227-5504! Her real home number is completely different! (227-3732)

I FELT SOOOO DUMB! So I called her actual home number, apologize for taking so long to contact her and told her what happened. She thought it was too funny.

I'm glad she wasn't upset...considering her show is in about 8 days. Aye!

Thought y'all might like that story....if any of you understood it. LoL.

Heh...you should have asked the person who you talked to at the wrong number if they were interested in hosting a show since you had already done part of the host coaching on their answering machine!!!

My Director set up a meeting with me for this past Thursday. She said she would call me closer to the day to decide on a time. Well I waited all day Thursday and finally decided she must of had something come up. About 4 o'clock or so, I get a call from my recruit. She said she had just got home from being gone all day, and there was a message on her machine for me from our Director. Ha!!

I always call back

I have made it a habit to call someone back who leaves a message on my machine that isn't for me.

I have left messages a couple of times at wrong numbers, and don't know it usually until it's too late!

So, I hope that by calling back a wrong number, I am helping someone out...

I especially hate it when a medical office leaves a message for Jane Doe on my machine. My machine clearly states who we are, and I've had "call back for your test results" messages left on my machine!

YIKES! :eek:

Well, at least the host thought it was funny too!
I feel like I've been borderline stalker too! With a couple of people that 'said' they wanted to have a show this month, but they won't call me back. I know it's the right number though!

We kept getting a dailyn call for a Benito Martinez from the lawfirm of Oodlema, Noodleman, and Cohen. It took me weeks to finally get a hold of them to tell them they had the wrong number. I asked the lady how they even collect any debt because I've been trying to get a hold of them for weeks. She din't think I was funny.

I had a host who I kept calling and calling and no one would ever answer. Finally a man picked up and i asked for the host. He said no one lives here by that name...I was calling 4287 rather than 4827. I felt so dumb...Well i've been calling this host for over a week now b/c she was supposed to do a show tonight and i left messages everyday and never received a response. I was thinking omg i'm calling the wrong number again but it wasn't. For some reason this lady just wouldn't call me back until late last night. This is the third time she has changed her party so i told her i would send her some more OOF and she could just do a catalog show....

I guess that would be one of those too much information moments:eek:

We used to get wrong # collection calls all the time. One time we came home from vacation to find 7 of them... gotta love being a Smith.

So I guess he was really upset because she took all of the PC stuff right??
