Sorry, wrong number

February 23rd, 2011 (12:26 pm)

This morning I had a message from a business in Illinois. They were trying to reach someone who'd called them after hours and must have misspoken her phone number, giving them mine. It's probably dorky, but I always return those calls to tell them they reached my number by mistake. At least it gives them a shot at trying again to connect with the right caller.

This morning I'm glad I did, because the person I talked to had the best Midwestern accent--she sounded a lot like Rose Nylund from "Golden Girls," but she sounded even more like my late friend Steve R's mother--super pleasant voice with a lilt, great phone etiquette. It made me happy just to talk to her.
