How’s this for a bizarre way to start off a week? My cell phone just rang with a call coming from the 732 area code (New Brunswick, New Jersey, according to this lookup site). I picked it up and said, “Hello, this is Ryan.”
“Hi,” came a woman’s voice, obviously holding back some amount of frustration. “Is this the main number for ClearChannel Communications?”
“Er, no,” I said, thinking, “I sure as hell hope not.”
I think it was confusion relating to “808” versus “818” or something. My phone number is all 7s, 3s and 2s, and I get lots of wrong numbers. But never before one from New Jersey, or one asking if I was that company. Eew.
