Yesterday morning I missed a call from a number I didn't recognise. When I tried to return the call I received an automated message from a switchboard stating that the "shopping centre is closed...and that I should call back later".
I don't get many calls from shopping centres! Later in the day I received another call from the same number and was amused to learn that it was a wrong number from an Apple Computer store & I was sat drinking Coffee at the Microsoft campus.
I missed another call whilst driving home last night. This time it was from an unrecognised mobile phone number. When I returned the call I found that the originator had somehow expected to reach the British Income Tax people - bizarre indeed as they'd dialed my MOBILE and in the UK such numbers are clearly separate from traditional telephone numbers.
I wonder who's going to call next? Redhat, Google, Ubuntu? or perhaps someone from Sun Microsystems...
I had a bizarre call day too. Except it was me doing the calling. My order for my Dominos pizza didn't go through correctly, so I called their advertised IT Helpdesk number for customers (everywhere has them now you know!). I had actually called the Next clothes shop helpline, which was useless in this case. It turns out their numbers are one digit different.
Wrong numbers are echoes from the 12 moonkey future.
