Wrong Number

Oh, the frustration of the crappy answering machine!

One night last week I got home from work and checked our machine, and I heard the following message:

Hi, this is Liz [undecipherable] from the [undecipherable] you may have heard [undecipherable] collection of [undecipherable] Jewish heritage and [undecipherable] got your number from your friend Judy [undecipherable] interested in hearing the history of your family and its journey from Russia, especially since she said your grandparents were [undecipherable]. If you're interested in participating, call me back at 212-[undecipherable]. Look forward to hearing from you soon!

Clearly this was a wrong number, as neither the Husband nor I are Jewish or have ancestors from Russia.

But I've been losing sleep, thinking that Liz thinks this family isn't interested in talking to her!

Since I have no number to call, I can't call her back and tell her she got the wrong number.

I'm just hoping that after she didn't hear back, she called Judy and Judy set her straight.

That must have happened, right? I have to tell myself that everything is ok, and Liz got a hold of this family eventually, and everything is fine.



Yes, that would make me feel bad too, thinking such an important message had not found its rightful intended.

But I'm sure all is fine!

(I hope)

Of COURSE it is!

I bet it was voice spam, like all those Chinese people who call me and then try to get me to buy a new telephone plan.

I understand. But perhaps it was not meant to be for the actual party...please stop loosing sleep over it (if you still are)
