It’s always important to keep track of who you’re talking to. A person getting a call or message that wasn’t meant for them can sometimes have disastrous consequences.
Mr Smith is on a business trip to Canada. He’s sitting in a hotel room, bored out of his mind. He decides to call home and see how his family is doing.
“Hello?” says a young girl on the other side of the line.
“Hello sweetie, it’s daddy. Is mommy there?”
“No, daddy. She’s up in the bedroom with our neighbor.”
“What did you just say? WHAT IN GOD’S NAME IS OUR NEIGHBOUR DOING IN MY BEDROOM?”
“Should I go check…?”
“NO! No no, sweetie, definitely not!”
After a short break he says:
“Okay. Can you do something for me? Put down the phone, run up the stairs, knock on the bedroom door and tell mommy that my car just pulled into the driveway.”
A few minutes later, the girl returns to the phone.
“I did it like you said, dad.”
“And what happened?”
“Mom jumped out of the bed without any clothes on, and was running around yelling. Then she tripped on the carpet and fell down the stairs. Now she’s just lying there and her neck looks funny.”
“Oh my god! And what about the neighbor?”
“He also jumped out of the bed without any clothes. He was really scared and jumped out of the window and into the swimming pool. But he must have forgotten that you had emptied the pool for cleaning. He hit the bottom and now he’s just lying there without moving.”
After a long pause Mr Smith says:
“Swimming pool? I don’t have a… Oh. You’re not my daughter Carol, are you?”
“No, I’m Felicia.”
“Excuse me. I must have dialed the wrong number…”
