Onslaught of the 12 year olds

Do I sound like a Courtney to you? No? I didn't think so either.

To complement my 3 text messages from yesterday, I received 3 calls today.

"Hello, may I speak to Courtney?" Today I'm going with a 12-14 year old girl as my caller.

"I'm sorry, you've got the wrong number," I replied.

"Oh, sorry," she said before hanging up.

I put my cell on the desk and it started to vibrate again.

"Hello, may I speak to Courtney?" the same girl asked.

"No, this is the wrong... what number are you dialing?"

"***-****," she replied.

"Well, that's this number, but she's not here. It's the wrong number," I concluded.

"Oh, ok. Sorry."

I set my phone down and resumed reading several mind-numbing web pages with blog hacks outside of my template tweaking comfort zone. Five minutes later, my phone buzzed again.

"Hello, may I speak to Courtney?" the same girl asked.

Dude, take a hint. You're killing me here. "I'm sorry, you've..."

"The wrong number," she interjected with recognition. "Sorry."

Sigh. It's just my luck to have the number of some popular pre-/early teen girl. Courtney, no less.

  1. This made me giggle. My grandfather's name is Courtney.

  2. At least you didn't get the final call:

    "Hi, this is Courtney, did anyone call for me?"

  3. Poor Courtney. She's missing her calls...

    Or else she gave the wrong number out because this stupid girl keeps bugging her.

  4. Julia- Shh, it's like you're tempting the gods.

    Sam- If Courtney has a cell, she must have email, right? The main thing is that the caller knew she wasn't getting through. I hate getting voice mails for wrong numbers. I should start a tally of them all.
