When I didn't write anything yesterday, were you thinking I had traveled to Texas to go on a church trip with my new friends? Well, much to dismay, they have not yet invited me on their trip, so I guess I will stay in Minnesota for now.
A post Jonniker wrote the other day, plus some of your comments on my last post, made me think of some weird phone calls I have received.
When I moved to Minnesota, I got a new cell phone and a new phone number. One Sunday, I got a phone call from a woman I didn't know. "YOU STOLE MY HUSBAND'S PHONE!" she yelled. I asked her what phone number she was trying to reach. She said her husband's phone number was XXX-XXX-XXXXZ. I tried to explain to her that phone numbers only have 10 digits and that the number she had just said was not a real phone number. She screamed, "I KNOW MY HUSBAND'S PHONE NUMBER! IT IS XXX-XXX-XXXXZ, AND YOU HAVE HIS PHONE!" Then she threatened to beat me up. I don't know about you, but I do not care for psycho idiots yelling at me. H took the phone from me and started screaming back at this lady. H hung up. The lady called back at least 10 times. So I called the police. An officer came to our house to take the report. Meanwhile, psycho idiot lady who doesn't know how phone numbers work kept calling me. The officer called psycho idiot lady from his Official Police Phone and tried to explain to her how phone numbers work. Eventually, he just said, "I'm sorry, ma'am, but this woman does not have your phone, and if you keep calling her, I will arrest you for harassing her." And she never called again. Yay!
The lessons of the day are (1) people are stupid, and (2) I am not afraid to call the police. But you already knew that.
