When I was in elementary school, I had a friend who wasn't exactly the most put together. After he gave me his house number (we weren't like those young'ns today with their cellular phones), I tried calling it.

Me: Hi, this is jleopold, can I talk to Joe?

Not Joe(NJ): I'm sorry you have the wrong number?

Me: Thanks. hang up

So, I tried again.

Me: Hi, this is jleopold, can I talk to Joe?

NJ: Wrong number again, sorry.

Me: Hmm. I better check the number. Thanks again. hangs up

So, I make sure I'm dialing right and try one more time.

NJ: Still not Joe.

Me: I guess he gave me the wrong number. Thanks again. hangs up

Turns out, the right number was pretty different. But it all worked out in the end.
