    I get woken up this morning, not by the soothing music from my alarm clock, but by the annoying ringing of my phone (one hour before I needed to be up). Being incoherent in the morning, I of course let it go to voice mail. The caller left only a hang-up... obviously a wrong number. Alas, I could not get back to sleep.

    Normally, I let things like this go... as I am a grown adult and it was an innocent mistake. BUT, seeing as this is how I started my day, I am a little cranky from waking up earlier than I needed to. I know wrong numbers happen, but when you are phoning someone early in the morning, I think it is your responsibility to dial the number correctly.

    Here is my dilemma... Do I do the grown up thing and let it go...OR do I do the immature thing and wait until the middle of the night and call the number back and ask what they were phoning for. So far, my wife and I are leaning towards option number 2.

    Option 2.

    And if they call you back after...just say that you were returning their call.

    I'm on the same boat... My sister had some friends sleep over (she's 12...) and at 7:00 this morning they decided to TALK REALLY LOUD LIKE THEY'RE WEARING EAR PLUGS AND DONT REALIZE IT...

    Do I be an ass and wake her up at 2:30 AM or so? No, because that would involve me being up at 2:30 AM. Should you be an ass and call that person at (insert really inconvenient time here)? Absolutely. Why? Because they don't live across the hall.

    Sorry--I was calling for your girlfriend...when you answered, I panicked and hung up. If you see her, would you pass on that she still owes me $40 for the other night?

    Option 2. It also sounds like a nice couple activity, you will treasure the laughs for years to come.

    You can always call back and say "your daughter come to my house and kicked my dog and now it needs operation," in a thick Indian accent.

    Make the call....As you said wrong numbers happen.

    Personally I would probably forget iut ever happened before that late hour comes to call them back.

    BUT BUT BUT, and there is always a but, if your GF and you are all for it and its for shits and giggles why not? It will be a fun little story for you two and in a relationship it is all abotu the little things.

    Thanx

    Honestly, I think it's kinda dumb to dwell on possible retribution for a single wrong number, regardless of when it occurred.

    If they called more than once, sure, but one time? I don't get it. Let it go.

    Worry about important things, like that thing growing on your neck. It's getting bigger, BTW.

    Call the number an hour before they did you.

    I hate morning calls. But I appreciate the fact that Im up earlier kinda in a way.

    I'd worry more about the fact that this bothered you so much that you couldn't get that last precious hour of sleep in. I mean seriously, it was a wrong number and you couldn't go back to sleep for that last precious hour? I could understand if you woke up and answered the phone and had a bad conversation and then couldn't go back to sleep, but you were so upset about this 2 second phone call that you didn't even answer that you couldn't go back to sleep.
