  • Fun With A Wrong Number

    It was last Wednesday night, and I was sitting in my room watching television when the phone rang. "Hello?" I said. A girl's voice came over the line. "Can I speak to Ben, please?" I live by myself, and my name definitely is not Ben. It was probably a wrong number and I was bored. I replied, "I'm sorry, he's not in right now. Can I take a message?"

    "Do you know what time he'll be back?" she responded.

    "I think he said he'd be home around 10:00."

    Silence on the other end... a confused silence.

    "Is this Steve?"

    My name isn't Steve, either. This was definitely a wrong number.

    So I replied, "Yes, it is. Do you want to leave a message for Ben?"

    "Well... he said he would be home tonight and asked me to call him," she said in a slightly irritated voice.

    I replied, "Well, he went out with Karen about an hour ago, and said that he would be back at 10:00."

    A shocked voice now: "Who's Karen?!"

    "The girl he went out with."

    "I know that! I mean... who is she?"

    "I don't know her last name. Look, do you want me to leave a message for Ben?"

    "Yes... please do. Tell him to call me when he gets home."

    She was sounding pretty irate at this point, and I could hear her temper flaring. "I sure will. Is this Jennifer?"

    She exploded, "Who's Jennifer?"

    Apparently she wasn't.

    "Well... he's going out with Jennifer at 10:00. I thought you were her. Sorry... it was an honest mistake."

    "Ben's the one that's made the mistake! Tell him that Alice called him and the she's very upset and that I would like him to call me as soon as he gets home."

    I smiled and said, "Okay, I will... but Becky isn't going to like this..."
