So my cousin emails me to say that she got engaged over the weekend. She and I haven't talked in a while so I decide to call her to say congratulations and just to chat because she is awesome to talk to. And so begins the evening of the telephone hating me.
#1: Dials Cousin's Cell Phone
Man: "Harry's Pool Supply"
Me: "Sorry, must have dialed the wrong number."
Ok she changed her cell phone number, like I said, it has been a while.
#2: Dials Cousin's Home Phone
Me: "Is Kim there?"
Man: "Sorry, wrong number."
Ok she moved, it happens.
#3: Dials Grandparent's House
Grandfather's Voice: "You have reached ....."
Ok they are out, they don't usually go out for any reason, but right now they are out.
#4: Dials Mom's Cell Phone
Mom's Voice: "You've reached Janet, I can't come to the phone right now..."
Ok not unusual for mom not to answer phone, she usually leaves it on silent and if in another room you can't hear that, I get it.
#5: Dials Parent's Home Number
do do do
Woman's Voice: "We're sorry but the number you are trying to reach is no longer in service..."
I give up.
