it's kind of cute - but embarrassing

I got a call today from an older middle aged woman who sounded Irish or Scottish - on my cell phone (like a mom)

she started and went on and on ... "hello - I came in today and bought the light blue shade of paint - but I really was wondering if you had the darker colonial blue -she went on -..." bla bla bla

I couldn't get a word in till finally she stopped and paused - and I said carefully but to no use -" I am sorry miss - you have a personal cell phone number -"

you could tell - she was so embarrassed - her voice slowed and dropped -
she proceeded to apologize profusely

I am so sorry - I am so sorry -- and then she frantically hung up

lol

My phone is ex dex, but I get lots of crossed numbers coming in.
Some of them ask me if I can do a removal today, and I say no.

They say, why not! Because I am not a removal man.
Then I get a young kid asking to speak to Alex, sorry kiddo, you got a crossed line too.

Some of them are amusing, like the one from a school asking why mary is not at school today, I politely said that I do not know, the teacher replied how do you mean.

You got a crossed number Miss, because she does not live here, and if she did, she would have to have a good excuse for not being in school.

That is just some of the many freaky phone calls I get, and I should get the phone Co, to pay me to take them :p

yeah, boy do I hear that one. I can think of a few times when I'd have liked for the floor to open up and swallow me whole. Helps to know that others have these same issues!
