In the words of the Fresh Prince himself, “Now this is a story all about how my life got flipped-turned upside down…” However, there’s one anecdote from my very recent past that is sure to rival that of Bel Air royalty.
It all started on the morning of Saturday, September 10, 2016. All day, I received countless phone calls from numbers I did not recognize.
As I normally do not answer my phone for individuals I don’t know, I never answered. By quarter to ten at night, I got curious. I know curiosity killed the cat, but I truly couldn’t help myself.
When my phone rang at 10:45 PM, I answered it, and what I heard next will shock and astonish you.
The gentleman answered and said that he found my phone number on an escort site. I was flabbergasted to say the least. I assured him that I was not the individual he may have been looking for, and promptly ended the call. After the initial shock wore off, I decided I should find out just what website my number was supposedly on. I called the gentleman back, but to no one’s surprise, he did not answer. Therefore, this led me to Google.
After about twenty minutes of digging, I found the website in question, and a phone number. There was one digit off between the escort’s correct number (which was listed on the line below my phone number). I rang the escort and explained that she made a typo which led to many of her gentleman callers, ringing my number instead. She was quite nice, and very apologetic, and assured me that she would make the correction posthaste. I refreshed the page on the escort site repeatedly until it showed that she corrected her mistake.
This is probably the most entertaining life story I’ve ever experienced!
