    The phone rang and I answered it...

    Me: Hello?
    Him: Hello dear, how are you doing?
    Me: Okay...
    Him: I heard the funniest joke and wanted to call and tell you!

    The voice sounded like a friend of mine, but he passed away a year ago. The number wasn't at all familiar, so...

    Me: Ummm... who is this?
    Him: This is Mike!

    A moment of silence...

    Him: I'm sorry, did I dial the wrong number? Chris isn't there?
    Me: No, there isn't a Chris here.
    Him: I'm sorry! I was trying to reach my daughter Chris to tell her this joke! I'll tell you anyhow. It's from Larry the Cable Guy when somebody asked how he stays so young. He said I tell them that I just read at the third grade level.

    Ok, the joke didn't strike me as funny enough to pass it on, but the fact that he told me the joke instead of just hanging up struck me as really funny.

    Great that he told you the joke, anyway. I'm betting that when he finally got up with Chris, he told her about the wrong number, and they got a bigger laugh off that than they did the joke!

    Better than some of the wrong numbers I've been on the receiving end of. Like the guy who was trying to contact a sick family member, and got pretty irate wanting to know why I kept answering (turned out the phone company literally had crossed wires - he had to dial my number to talk to them until it got straightened out). Or the series of obscenity - laced voicemails that were clearly intended for a guy friend. Or the guy who didn't realize I wasn't his girlfriend and was comin' on strong until I stopped him in mid-sentence with, "excuse me??!"[​IMG]

    That story is hilarious! The story is way funnier than the joke which is about LTCG par :)

    I once had some guy call my number and sing a very original *cough* birthday song to his girl friend(not me) . Called again the next day, he was so embarrased when i told him he left the song in the wrong VM box. I kept it for like two weeks.
