People dialing the wrong number that won’t give up

Last night around 8:30 or so, we get a call on our home phone. We don’t use it much, we only have a land line for emergencies and the occasional local phone call. Usually the only calls we get are telemarketing calls.

This call was not a telemarketer, caller ID said it was from C. McClain 404-246-9353. We’re used to people dialing us as a wrong number, our number used to belong to a Jeff Bridges. No, probably not that Jeff Bridges. We figure whoever this is will hear the answering machine message and realize that they have the wrong number.

No such luck, the guy calls back in less than a minute. This time I answer. He asks for Danielle. I tell him he has the wrong number and hang up. I figure that’s the end of it. Nope, he calls back, again less than a minute later. Stephanie answers this time, angrily tells him not to call back and wake up our sleeping baby.

That’s got to be the end, right? Nope. We go to bed and around 11:00 he calls again. We let it ring. He calls again, we let it ring. The third time he calls, I’m really mad. I answer and tell him he has the wrong &^%*@$ number. Then I leave the phone off the hook.

6:30 a.m. and it’s time to feed Lisa. I figure we’re safe and plug the phone back in. We feed Lisa and crawl back into bed. The phone rings, yep, it’s Mr. McClain. I answer. This time he asks to speak to Jessica, different girl than before. I tell him he has the wrong number. He argues with me, he doesn’t have the wrong number. I tell him he does and to not call this number again.

So it’s 10:45 and I think we’re safe. Hopefully, Mr. C. McClain, 404-246-9353, a cell phone user from Atlanta has sobered up, dialed the right number, and hooked up with whatever women he was trying to find last night. Ladies, if you are trying to find Mr. C. McClain, remember his cell phone number is 404-246-9353. Write it down, maybe on the walls of a bathroom stall somewhere, preferably a men’s room. 🙂

Update: He just called again at 3:20 p.m. He just won’t give up.
