This Company’s Days Are Numbered

(I’m at home watching TV when I receive a call on my cellphone. I’m a girl.)

Representative: “Hello, I’d like to speak with Mr. [name].”

Me: “I’m sorry; this is not his number.”

Representative: “Is the number [number]?”

Me: “Yes, it is, but this not his number.”

Representative: “But you know him?”

Me: “No, I don’t know him.”

Representative: “Are you his wife?”

Me: “No, I told you I don’t know the guy. I’ve never heard of him. This is not his number; it’s mine.”

Representative: *rudely*This is the number I have on the system. Did you buy the phone recently?”

Me: “No, this is my number, and I’ve had it for over 7 years. He must have made a mistake when he gave you the number.”

Representative: “No, he gave us the number a couple of days ago and we confirmed it.”

Me: “Well, then I don’t know what to say. This is not his number.”

Representative: “Anyway, you have to tell him he owes us $[amount] and he has to come pay it by tomorrow!”

Me: “Excuse me, but what part of ‘This is not his number’ and ‘I don’t know him’ do you not understand?”

Representative: “Anyway, be sure to tell him that when you see him!”

(Despite my attempts to explain my situation multiple times, this went on for days!)
