A few months back I had an eye exam scheduled. About two hours before the exam, my Dr. called me on my cell phone to tell me the office was without power and they would be contacting me to reschedule the appointment. She mentioned that she was calling from HER cell phone because the office phones were down.
As soon as we hung up I saved her number.
At the rescheduled appointment I told her I saved her number and don’t be surprised if she gets a call from me. We both laughed, but I was dead sirius.
If you call or text my cell phone, I’m saving your number. Do you hear that Mr. Obama? You better make sure to dial the right number, because you don’t want me having yours.
A few years back I got a text about a bond. I played along, asking questions. Finally the guy wised up and called me, he said he had the wrong number, and could I just delete the text. Naturally I asked him what he did, and I found out he’s a bail bondsman.
Hmmmm… good number to have just in case Mr. Obama does call my phone number by accident. I stored the bail bondsman’s number in my phone, it simply says, Bondsman.
You never know when you might need to post bond…
I like having people’s numbers in my phone. For instance, I have my State Senator’s cell number in my phone and call him when I need his thoughts or his ear.
Oh yes, I am that woman.
While I was on the phone with the vet’s office Friday night I joked with the receptionist that my vet better hope I never get her cell phone number. If I did, I imagine I would probably text her quite a bit.
It might go something like this:
Me: Hi Dr. Soutter this is Jodi Stone, I have a question for you about Sampson.
Dr. Soutter: How did you get this number?
Me: Um… I think I saw it accidentally the last time I was in your office. Anyway, Sampson threw up his breakfast this morning and I was wondering if you thought it was something I should be worried about?
Dr. S: Jodi, I know you worry, but unless Sampson is vomiting every meal, I think you should just keep an eye on him. And please, forget you got this number and call the office next time.
Me: Thanks Dr. Soutter, have a great day!!
Me: Hi Dr. Soutter, on our walk today the dogs, particularly Delilah kept getting chomped at by deer flies. I was wondering if you knew of anything I could give them that would repel the deer flies. Oh and gnats too!
Dr. S: Is this Jodi?
Me: Yes, yes it is!
Dr. S: If you have a question please phone the office. The receptionist should be able to help you with insect repellent questions. I would really prefer to keep our relationship professional.
Me: Ok Dr. Soutter, have a great day!
Me: Hey Dr. S, you know Sampson and Delilah are on the garlic tablets right? Well I forgot to give them a dose, do you think they’ll be ok? I hate to give them too much because it does make them gassy and oooh, boy you don’t want to be around for that one! LOL
Dr. S: I think they’ll be fine. Again, please call the office with your questions. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have surgery to perform.
Me: Thanks Dr. S, have a great day!
Me: Hey Alexis, how’s it going? I forgot to mention yesterday that Delilah is gulping her water. What are your thoughts on this?
Dr. S: Jodi, call the office with your questions.
Me: OMG, you stored my cell phone info!! I’m so excited. Are you free today for lunch?
Dr. S: I’m trying to be nice and professional but you are pushing my buttons. What you are doing is bordering on harassment! And please, we are not friends, call me Dr. Soutter and NO I AM NOT FREE FOR LUNCH!
Me: Thanks Alexis! Have a great day!!
Me: Hey A, you won’t believe this, but I found two white hairs on Delilah’s back, do Chocolate Lab’s usually get white on their back?
Me: Alexis? Alexis? Are you mad at me?
Response: I’m sorry, you have the wrong number, there is no Alexis here. I just got this number today….
YEP, if she’s smart, she probably shouldn’t give me her number.
