When you call the wrong number on the phone, it is easy to tell you have made a mistake. The person on the other end doesn’t sound like the person you were calling, and they will tell you that you have the wrong number. So, you hang up and try again.
Text messages don’t really work like that – what if the person you text is playing a joke on you and pretends to be someone else? How would you know? In a three-hour exchange, a woman had sent a text message to the wrong person, and the person who got the text tried to tell her right away that she had the wrong number, but she didn’t believe him!
She thought her daughter was playing a joke on her – and she wasn’t amused.
The man on the other end gave up trying to tell her she had the wrong number and went along with it for some time!
The mother just couldn’t understand how she had the wrong number!
