Oh my gosh, hilarious — just called the wrong number but person had the same name. Led to a humorous exchange :)

What are the odds??   I called the wrong number, the person sounded a little different so I said, “Kris?”  

Yes, she said.  

How are you? I asked.  

Doing okay.  

Did you make it through the hurricane okay?  

Long pause.  Hurricane?  

Yes, you are in Florida aren’t you?  

No.  

Kris Day?  

No, this is Kris (forgot).  

I had the wrong number (wrong area code)!  We exhanged a good laugh, talked about what the odds are of calling someone with the wrong number with the same name.  It gave me a good chuckle and a fun interaction with a stranger early in the day.  I love things like that in life!

Since my illness, I hate answering the phone

My job requies me to make quite a few phone calls, and that is okay.  But since my illness, I don’t like when people call with something that could be put down on paper (email or text).  Honestly, I never have liked phone calls, since almost always I am doing something and dislike the interruption, but since my illness a few years ago I truly dread when my phone rings, I think because I don’t feel well and it takes all I  have just to keep things moving forward.  I don’t mind in-person meetings or emails, but hate phone calls.  Go figure…  Unfortunately, so many of my peers insist on phone calls (especially in Sales Management) rather tahn emails, so that is a bummer.
