wrong numbers

why is it that people will give you a phone number when they don’t want to talk to you ?

now, i’m not talking about that cute little dancer down at the yellow rose that finally breaks down after you’ve been gnawing at her like a yard dog on a pork rib for six hours.

by the time you sober up the next day and get a good look at your american express receipt you’ve got to have a pretty good idea that the number she gave you is going to hook up to some christian fundamentalist sponsored thing like “dial a prayer” anyway.

no, i’m talking about people who send you an e-mail saying “hi, just wanted you to know that i have a new phone number and it’s #### ####.”

then you call and it’s somebody screaming at you in a foreign language (the only part you understand is “pinche gringo!”) and saying bad things about your mama and your daddy.

what.is up.with.that!?

did you piss this person off and she’s just too tired to call you names herself so she gets a third world stranger to do it for her?

or was there some cleverly concocted and carefully concealed message in between the “pinche” and the “gringo” that i somewhat obtusively missed?

i don’t know.

but i can tell you one thing…

…i’m not gonna piss erin (not her real name) off again.

    Humm, gotta wonder what you did, cause she’s (not her real name) normally such a nice person. HA!

    Sometimes that’s the best revenge….keeping someone (not his real name) guessing šŸ™‚

    Besides, wrong number or not, at least theirs works. Unlike SOME people we know šŸ™‚
