Everyone dials a wrong number here and there, it’s just how life goes. Most people are humble enough to realize their mistake right away, but others will try to argue with your or become suspicious of your answers.
That was the case here tonight (as I sit at work and type this quick entry out for all to enjoy).
Woman:”hi, is your hotel right next to the airport?”
Me: “Uhm… ma’am…”
Woman: “Yeah, the Philadelphia Airport…”
Me: “I think you called the wrong number because this is a hotel in Nebraska.”
Woman: “Nebraska? This is the hotel though, isn’t it?”
Me: “Yes, but for one in Nebraska.”
Woman: “So is this a main headquarters number?”
Me: “Nope, you probably just transposed a number.”
Woman: “Oh. Uh. Bye.”
It was hard to tell if she was embarrassed or still not satisfied with my responses to her. Either way, the fact that she kept trying to get information out of me that I didn’t have was hilarious and made this incredibly slow night just a tad bit better.
