Yesterday morning somebody kept trying to send me a fax. On my home phone. After about 10 tries they called me. When I answered the phone they said they must have the wrong number. Then my phone rang again. This is how this conversation went:
Man: Yes, is this 770-###-####
Me: Um, yes
Man: Is this a new phone number for you?
Me, a little suspicious: Uh, yeah
Man: Well this is Bob So-and-so with the Barrow County Sheriff's Department and I think you've been getting our calls.
Me, continuing with my unintelligence because I was caught off-guard: Uh, maybe, who is this?
Man: Bob with Barrow County Sheriff's Department.
Me: Um, ok, yeah, I've been getting what sounds like fax calls this morning.
Man: Yes, Windstream gave you a government number that wasn't supposed to be released and our calls are being routed to your phone.
Me: Oh wow.
(I know he was thinking who the hell is this goober?)
Man: So I'm contacting Windstream and having this taken care of immediately.
Me: Um, thanks.
Man: Hopefully they won't give you a Walmart number this time...
Me, laughing like a maniac but feeling not-so-off-guard now: Yeah, that would be good! Thanks for your help.
Man: You're Welcome. Have a great day.
Me: Thanks. You too. Bye.
Man: Bye bye now.
I hang up and the phone immediately begins to ring again.
Lady: Hi, this is Sherry with the Juvenile Court and my records show....Oh wait, your the 770-###-#### lady aren't you?
Lady: Sorry. Have a good day.
