@boomerang,
Nordic Track
For a while I got calls regularly for people looking to purchase Nordic Track, they'd seen it advertised on television and this was the phone number. Strangely they didn't remember to place the toll free '800' code before my number. They could remember 7 digits; but, not the 800? I just shut the ringer off and checked on the answering machine for any actual messages. You'd be surprised how many, after hearing a message stating my name, not Nordic Track, insist on leaving details asking for a brochure to be sent them.

What's your wrong number story?


We usually get phone calls which actually want a connection to some extension at the headquarters of a local, international automotive part supplier. (From private ... "Could you tell Michael that I'm not at home when he returns from the shift" ... to business-related ,,,, "We didn't get the drawings. Could you resent them" ...)

They a complete different number - but four digits are the same .... as our complete number. [Yes, we still have a four digit number: easier to remember. We've two ten digit numbers as well - which I don't know at all.]

Most annoying, however, is when they send a fax from one office in the headquarter to another. So I have to call the telephone girl there, tell her to give a person at that fax a note that she/he is dialling the wrong number ...

@jespah,
And you know - that Outback is out of business too - perhaps my kids were playing with their orders as well.
