I got a call today from a real estate person asking about a rental property. I said he must have the wrong number and asked him what number he called. It was ours. "Oh," he said, "It must be a bad number. Hey, while I've got you, do you have any real estate needs?"
Was the whole wrong number bit a ruse for a cold call?
Tricky if it was. But maybe that was okay. I was able to tell him "no" without feeling the least bit put upon.
Normally, solicitors make me squirm. Truly. I don't like dealing with them at all, no matter how nice they are. Even if they are trying to sell me on something I might actually want.
