Please Dial Carefully

I admit, I’ve personally misdialed on a few occasions and gotten a wrong number. Thus, I do not generally harbor negative feelings when I am the recipient of a misdialed call.

But for the love of Pete, please exercise extra dialing caution when calling someone at 5 in the morning…twice!!!!!

I’m always nice to wrong numbers as long as they are nice enough to appologize. People who call back a second time and simply hang up really torque me.

Funny thing is, the first time, they didn’t say anything. Sounded like they were driving in a car. I could hear them but couldn’t make out what they were saying. I finally hung up. They called again about 3 minutes later, and it started out the same way, until a few seconds later an hispanic-sounding woman tried to answer, then handed the phone to a guy. He asked for someone’s name I couldn’t understand, and I told him, “Would you please dial more carefully when calling someone at 5:00 a.m.?” He said “sorry, bro” and hung up.
