Every day is an adventure around here! I had a funny thing happen when I was in an office the other day. It was so quiet you could hear a pin drop...I was there an hour and not one phone call came in, and barely a voice spoke during that time. Well, at some point a person there decided to call someone, and they did it while having the phone on speaker. They tried three times to call the same person, and after the third call, I thought I might be in another universe! Here's how it went:
Sound of dialing the phone (remember it is all on speaker now, OK)...
Sound on other end when it picks up: FAX MACHINE BEEPING.
Sound of dialing (still on speaker)...
I am trying to reach "so and so"
You have the wrong number! (Spoken quiet loudly and clearly as I could hear all of this very well from the next room over).
No, I'm trying to reach "so and so".
As I said, you have the wrong number.
Oh, I have the wrong number, I'm sorry.
Sound of dialing again...
When phone picks up it is the melodic sounds of la, la, la...this number is no longer in service, please hang up and try again!!!!!
Now, I ask you, was this person on crack, or what? It's not bad enough that you can dial the supposed same number three times and end up calling something or someone different each of the three times, BUT....YOU HAVE TO HAVE IT ON SPEAKER SO EVERYONE CAN HEAR HOW STUPID YOU ARE!!!
Several other weird happenings occured during my visit to this particular office, and I felt I should get up and run away as fast as possible. I did escape there fairly quickly, and I was so relieved to get back out in the fresh air and sunshine!
