If you diall a wrong number apologise for fuck's sake. Don't just hang up. Ok?
I've cooked a pizza and a quiche. I've not been able to do that for over a year!
Thanks so much for that.
it's strange going back to using a full-size one, i keep burning my food.
that's a bit extreme
though I too had a wrong number caller about 15 minutes ago
It's strange when they insist on asking you questions as if to try and find some way in which the mistake was not theirs
but I get fuckloads at work and its a pain in the arse when you drop what you're doing to pick up the phone and the person on the other end doesn't even have the courtesy to apologise for their error.
The boards still aren't quite there...
if you have been informed that you have reached a wrong number don't dial it again immediately after.
when trying to reach a number that was actually too long. i kept telling her this but she kept redialling..
Obviously it's logical to ask "is this (whatever number) ?". Apart from I did that once and they hung up. So people who receive wrong number calls can be rude too.
then I am happy to help.
If they ring back twice I will spend the rest of my days doing something.
when you dial a wrong number and your not sure you HAVE the wrong number or just dialled it wrong - it is perfectly acceptable to try again, and if you hear the same voice pick up, you just hang up. avoids embarrasment and is what both parties would prefer.
