I'm gonna post this convo here. Even though I am meant to
post it somewhere else, but that place isn't working and
even though I do hate to double up I will post it here
anyway and the other place. Because I can do that.
I just had this what felt like a 10min conversation on the phone with
a total stranger. She was both strange and a stranger. Being that I
play squash comp Monday nights and that I am captain I have
to make certain phonecalls when problems arise or things
need to get shifted or whatever the case might be at the
time. So I rang the Opposing Teams Squash Centre to aquire
a phone number of the team captain, so we could have a
captain to captain chat. Now I obviously wrote the number
down wrong OR!!! I'd prefer to think the wally at the other
end gave me the wrong number. Whatever the case it was
totally the wrong number. I couldn't understand her from a
bar of soap and I don't think she understood me.

Pinkle: Yes I need to see if I can change the night we play.
Strange Woman: Well there is no Julie here. This is a
Pinkle:(Thinking does she think I think she is a squash
centre?) Well I must have the wrong number sorry.
Strange Woman: Yes, you must have the wrong number. No
Pinkle: Thanks, Bye *hangs up*
