No, You Can't Ask

Twice in the past month or two, I've received calls for other individuals (ie. wrong number), and when I inform the person on the other end that they dialed the wrong number, they ask, "May I ask who I'm speaking with?"

Ummmm. NO! Is it just me, or is that a weird question to ask? How is it possibly relevant who I am? I informed them that the party they are trying to reach is not reachable at the number they dialed... that should be the end of the conversation, albeit for some sort of "I'm sorry to have bothered you. / No problem, goodbye" kind of exchange.

What's up people?

why not try a new approach, when you get a wrong number say "Thank God you called - can you get over here right now, I have a burst pipe and I urgently need help, water everywhere" - then hang up ;-) Conor, July 28, 2008 04:31
