Don't you hate it when you get a phone call that turns out to be a wrong number call? It's mostly annoying, but sometimes it can be very amusing. These people share their strangest wrong number phone conversations.
Redditors of Reddit, what is the most strange "wrong number" call you've ever received?
I got a call and did not recognize the number so I ignored it 3 or 4 times until I gave in. I picked up the phone and before I could say anything a guy with a Brooklyn accent starts talking in panic and he said "YO THAT GUY WE SAW WAS ONE OF POLISH TOM'S BOYS IF HE SHOWS UP DON'T SAY S*** ABOUT LAST NIGHT" and said " Sorry this must be the wrong number." he just started cursing and hung up. Ever since then I have been curious who What this "Polish Tom" looks like.
I used to get calls for "phoebe" right after I got my new number. A lot of calls. I was always nice and let them know they had the wrong number. This went on for two years.
Near the end I got a call from an unknown number. It was phoebe! She said she wanted to apologize, thanks me for being kind, and she thinks she told everyone the new number, but if anyone calls, could I give it to them? I said sure, no problem.
Still occasionally got calls. I politely informed them of the new number. One guy was surprised and started texting me about the whole situation. We became friends only over text and still text occasionally to this day. :)
Dude called from prison. After I told him wrong number he said he had nobody to talk to and he had just dialed a random number. I was young and naive but the dude never asked for anything. We talked for a while, him telling me how he got to be in jail. Straight up street thug but he was trying to make good and get back to society in good shape. Never talked again. I hope he made it out ok.
