This morning my phone rang and the caller ID told me it was a good friend that I hadn’t talked with for a long time. I was so happy to hear from her and asked her what was up. There was a pause, and a wary voice asked who I was. It seems she had not put her glasses on before dialing. Ha! How many times have I dialed the phone, gotten distracted and then didn’t know who I was calling? I could relate!
After I explained (laughingly) who I was, we settled in to a wonderful, newsy conversation. It was so nice to catch up on what she had been doing, and how she was doing. When we finally hung up so she could make the call she originally intended to make, I was still giggling about it all.
HB (HoneyBunny) has made many cell phone calls from his hip pocket. Now that we have touch screens, he is even more dangerous with his dialing! The slightest touch can cause the phone to call whoever happens to be in the line of “fire.” The last one was a call to a Facebook contact, a Pastor who lives in Phoenix, who was actually on a family vacation in Scotland at the time – on a golf course, to be exact. Bless him, he chatted with HB awhile and prayed for him (probably asking the Lord to add special controls to HB’s phone). Believe me, it didn’t take me long to figure out how to get rid of the Facebook contacts that were in our phone’s address books!
There have been a few “oops” calls in the middle of the night when HB is attempting to set the alarm on his phone. (Did I mention that technology is getting more challenging for him as the years go by?) Fortunately, most of those calls went to a local doctor and the office was, of course, closed. Whew!
What silly or embarrassing experience have you had with your phantom phone calls?
