For the past few weeks I have been getting phone calls from an unnamed local number.
(that isn’t actually my phone).
Unknown callers bring out the real optimist in me. A secret admirer has found my number, someone wants to offer me a deal I can’t refuse on countless things, or the like.
I rarely think it is a courtesy call (which it always is).
This number was persistent. Day after day I would look down having just missed a call from them. How is it possible?
This morning was my lucky day. The phone was ringing, now is my chance to meet my destiny.
“Hello?” I answer with an eager fervor.
Pause….an obvious sign of a courtesy call, “Hello, may I please speak to Mort?”
Dang you courtesy wrong numbers.
