Dear Mr Wrong Number Man,

My name is Daniel Bowen. I said as much when I answered the phone. My name is not Ricky Bowden. Never has been. I don’t know what you’re talking about. Good luck in dialling the right number next time.

Ring, ring …
Me: “Hello, Trish speaking”.
Them: “Hello, is Mister (Blah) there, please?”
Me: “Nope, no-one by that name here”.
Them: “May I speak to the home-owner then, please?”
Me: “This is a rental property. Do your research better.”
Clunk. I hate wrong numbers. I hate telemarketers more. I hate wrong-number-telemarketers even more!

Just wait till you get a computer generated call from our darling PM. I got one last night … very exciting that he took time out from his busy schedule to send me Voc-spam!
