A couple of weeks ago, I called a man about his resume. He happened to be out of town, working in Bulgaria. We played phone tag for several days trying to catch each other when "the satellite moved into the right position".
I gave up on contacting him and put him at the bottom of my pile of resumes.
On April Fools, I received a text from a number I did not recognize and I couldn't help myself!
I had to respond.
Today, I got a call
"Margaret, this is Blah Blah."
(Changed the name for stranger privacy)
"We talked when I was in Bulgaria."
I was delighted, "it's you! Are you back in the states?"
He laughed, "yes! I am back. Did you pick up the kids?"
I was stumped. "Pick up the kids?"
"Yes. You told me that you sold the kids and that you loathe me."
I suddenly turned into Beaker, from the Muppets.
"Ah. That was you? That was so funny! I posted about it because crazy things happen to me all the time!"
(To be read with high pitch Beaker muppet voice)
He laughed, "your response was so funny. I knew my mistake when I read your response, but I thought I would wait until I returned to tell you it was me."
I love my job!
