What are da odds, or, I HATE 3:15 AM phone calls

When you have three kids, even when they are all adults (and one of them is living in Peru), the phone ringing at 3:15 AM is a dread-filled sound once one awakens enough to register the noise.

Our bedroom phone is on a nightstand on my wife’s side of the bed.

Phone rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrring rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrring rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrring
Caller ID: a number in San Antonio Texas
a sleepy hellllo from my wife
“Is John there?”
“yes, is John there, this is Amanda?”
phone is handed over to me
“Who the hell answered the phone???”
“uh, my wife”
“ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh” followed by hangup

So what we have here is a wife/girlfriend trying to catch her significant other with another woman…I’m sure that happens every night, but what are the odds of getting a wrong number in Nashville and the name fits? I know my name is common, but still….whyyyyyyyy me???

PS. Wide awake until 5:30 …thanks AMANDA from San Antonio!

  1. That’s hysterical! I have to link this one!
    Oops…I mean, sorry your night of lost sleep and potential divorce court is so funny to me, but dang, John…

  2. uh, I didn’t know this Amanda person, so Lynn wasn’t upset at me..just upset at getting wakened at 3:15 AM.

    It was a wrong number..

  3. Hi John,
    That was clear…that you didn’t know Amanda. I just think it’s a really funny story and it could have been much worse if Lynn weren’t so calm.

    I responded to your comment on my thread as well.

    You post is clear. I am afraid I was the one who was clumsy with wording.

  4. That sounds like something that would happen at my house. That is hi-larious.

    You oughta call her back for a follow up “How are things?”

  5. This is one of those stories that is funny to me because….well, it didnt’ happen to me and interrupt my night of sleep. 🙂

  6. Dude, that’s bizarre. I get a lot of wrong numbers on my cell phone, and some of them happen at night, but so far, nobody’s asking for Kate. And Kate’s a pretty common name, too, so I suppose it’s only a matter of time.

    Karsten, on the other hand, has nothing to worry about.

  7. EZA

    This is wayyy too funny. OK, not for you, probably. Or your wife. But hey, it’s hilarious for the rest of us, and this is what matters, no? 😀 And I do feel sorry for Amanda’s guy when he gets found out. I hope she films it.
