    Today I was out looking for apartments and I called the what I thought was the number on a for rent sign. I told the person I was interested in an apartment. He asked where I was. I told him I was at 3308, near A1A. He said his apartments are on my street. That's when I realized I had somehow hit my landlord's number on speed dial by mistake. So now if he knows it's me he knows I'm looking for a new apartment. :redface:

    God has a funny sense of humor,of all the numbers in my speed dial I have to hit the only one that I don't want to know that I'm looking for an apartment.

    So have you ever called the wrong person at the worst time by mistake?

    OOOOOOH I hate drunk diallers! Couple of years ago a mate called me in the middle of the night while I was in bed to come get him before he passed out (in a car park in Tel Aviv). There are a couple of other instances where friends have been on the receiving end of my drunk dials tooo

    Cell phones and booze do not mix. :S

    I'd say sometimes even drunk driving is safer than drunk dialing. I've gotten myself in some pretty messy situations.

    Oh sorry about the headache with the landlord. I once called my boss at 3:30 in the morning. I thought I was calling a car service to take me to the airport and hit his cell number by mistake.

    Oops! What a coincidence!

    A lot of people have accidentally called me while their phones were in their pockets, while they happened to be talking about me, leaving me with weird little snippets of their conversation on my voicemail. The only time that this was really revealing was one time when one of the best friends of my boyfriend at the time, who was also his ex-girlfriend, was talking to a few other people about how much I hated her and how jealous I was of her. Everything she said was news to me! I always thought that she was very nice to me, if a little bit awkward sometimes, but I thought that would go away when we got to know each other better. When I confronted her to clear it all up and let her know that there are no negative feelings between us and that I neither felt hatred nor jealousy towards her, she refused to admit that she had said those things, even though I had her recorded voice saying all those things about me right in my hand. It was a surreal conversation because she just kept saying, "Oh, I never said that!" like she hadn't, even though I knew that she had. I just dropped it and gave up on the conversation. Even though I was 21 and she was closer to 30, I think she wasn't mature enough to have that conversation with me.
