Hello, can I speak to Daniel …

Just happened. Dialed a number I had for someone named Daniel, for a story I’m working on:

“Hello, can I speak to Daniel?”

Long pause.


“Now you guys have done it!”

“Uh, what?”

“Now you guys have done it! I said I was going to prosecute, and now I’m going to!”

“Uh …”

“You’ve been calling me for three years! Three years!”

“M’am …”

“And now—that’s it!”

“M’am, I have no idea what you’re talking about.”

“Yeah, right!”

“M’am, I’m a writer. I’m calling to …”


“Uh, OK.”
