I just received the MOST hilarious phone call!

(riiiiing, riiiiing...)

Me- hello



caller- uh, hello?

Me- hello!

caller- who is this?

Me- You called my number. Maybe you dialed the wrong one? (her voice didn't sound familiar)

caller- do you know ______ ______?

Me-no, not on purpose. hey wait. my kids mentioned a ________(first name only) and a ________(girl's first name only) is that him?

caller- noooooooo. _________ _________! is this - - - -(last digits of my phone number)?

Me- yeah, but maybe you misdialed the first part?

caller- ***-***_****? I found this number in my husband's pocket!

Me-( I can NOT help but laugh out loud!)hmmm yeah, that's this number.(puzzled now) maybe he works with my husband at ______ ____?

caller- no! mine works at ____ ___!

Me-(oh shi+!) my daughter in law works there. icon_eek.gif (and I bust out laughing). I know what's up. You need to put that number baaaaaaaack into your husband's pocket and pretend like you NEVER seen it. I will tell you but you can't tell anyone what I'm about to tell you. Are you fixing to turn *0?

caller-yes icon_confused.gif

Me- I make cakes

she sounded like she was about to cry. you could hear such relief in her voice. Imagine how much oomph she had to build up to make that call and what had to be going through her mind.

I didn't want to ruin any surprise he had planned for her (he hasn't yet placed an order). But her suspicions could've built up enough for her to crack him on the head...I wouldn't want to watch that episode of Snapped!

Hopefully, she can keep the secret. shhh.gif I did tell her that I may not be the one he decides to have make it so don't get upset if she finds other numbers in his pockets.

Daggum, he should be better at hiding stuff if he's planning a surprise party! icon_twisted.gif

Oh, she waaaaaaaas. I told her, "I hope to hear from him and I hope to see you there!" I introduced myself to her and she did the same to me. The whole time SHE was giggling toooo.

I just hope I didn't mess up too badly.

oh that poor woman... and very gutsy of her to dial the number. my hubby has bits of paper with numbers on it/business cards and late night phone calls all the time (he works in IT and he is a weekend scuba instructor) and ive never been suspicious

poor woman - im glad you had the answer for her and hopefully you get the cake order so you can meet her

Wow, good thing you set her straight or she'd be freaking out more. There's your good deed for the day.

What a sigh of relief she must have had. I'll bet he gets an extra special V-day present. thumbs_up.gif

I'm thinkin'...if he doesn't give her a surprise party...she might just pay a buck 95 and hunt my butt down! She's got my number....lol...I'm serious...

If ya'll see an episode of Snapped next fall and it's about a woman found ...um...without a pulse near Charlotte and a man found two or three towns over(I tracked down her phone number! ) ...she done flipped.

I think I watch too much Snapped and Forensic Files. Don't think I won't be scratchin her...they'll find her dna under my nails!

If I don't get the order...I pray someone does...I don't care who either!

You're too funny. I love to watch those shows too.

Here's one I got a while back on my cell phone. The # popped up, but I didn't recognize it.

me: hello
me: heeeelllllloooooo
her: (very unsure tone) um, hello?
me: did you need something?
her: who is this?
me: who did you call?
her: this number was in my husband's cell phone's list of received #s and I want to know who you are.
me: (recognizing her, but she doesn't recognize me yet) Um...this is April. What is Daddy up to?

Yes, no joke. It was my stepmom who was snooping in my dad's cell phone and didn't trust him. I'll bet she was red-faced after that call.

Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction, they say. icon_rolleyes.gif

I've never told anyone this, because it is so embarassing, but....

A month or so after my second baby was born (you know, raging hormones and all) I was snooping through my husband's cell and there was a "Michelle" (my name) programmed in there, but NOT my number and the prefix was for a town over. I made up some story as to why I was looking through his phone and asked him who that was. He was like, duh, that's the phone number to your hospital room when you were having the baby!!

THese stories are hysterical!! icon_lol.gif

I can't even think of a reason why I would call a number I found in my husband's pocket. There are a thousand logical reasons why a person would have a phone number in their pocket. If you're secure in your relationship it wouldn't even cross your mind to call.

Michelle you're exempt though, those post-partum hormones are crazy!

I don't look in my husband's pockets. But if I did, and found a number, I'd be curious for sure. I'd probably even ask him who's it was. and you can bet your sweet bippy, if he was hesitant in the least bit, I'd be calling that number!

I reckon it would depend on what line of work your husband was in or his normal routine....if a number that happened to have a woman's name attached to it was found in MY husband's pocket....something would be amok.

Actually, I'd probably find out who it belonged to without having to call it...like I said...a buck 95 goes a long way when trying to find information...

Angela I so agree (on both points!). thumbs_up.gif

I've never, in over 20 years, gone thru his pockets, wallet, email or cell phone. And vice versa. And most of his friends are woman, but I just refer to them as "one of your many girlfriends!" icon_biggrin.gif

I mean, if you have a question about something you find, why not just ask him, like Michelle did? thumbs_up.gif

But ... I'm glad the birthday girl in the original post didn't do that. Otherwise we would have missed our great laugh of the day! And she would have ruined his surprise for her! icon_biggrin.gif

She may be turning *0 but I think she just took 5 years off of her life and only gained back 2! Poor thing! lol

These are too funny!... How often I have washed receipts and such after almost 20 years together!!! I told him I keep whatever money gets tossed around in the washer/dryer. He can have all the other stuff! icon_lol.gif

If I allow myself to ponder, I do think, though, that there are certainly some causes for concern when finding #'s in hubby's pockets. icon_eek.gificon_surprised.gificon_wink.gif

btw, aussie money is made from a plastic polymer so that survives washing with no problems thumbs_up.gif

Can someone explain the buck 95 idea? I have no clue what you're talking about icon_confused.gif

auntmamie, a buck 95 = $1.95

Those sites that you can find information on people (peoplesearch.com...something like that...there's probably thousands of them) for $1.95 for one time or 13.95 for as many searches as you want in a month...or something like that.

I have never been willing to pay for those sites - I always just skip by the "pay here" button, so that's why I couldn't figure it out!

Thanks for the explanation.
