Since I got my cell phone last summer, I have occasionally gotten calls and voicemails from people looking for someone named Steve. I have sometimes had some trouble convincing these people that I am not, in fact, Steve. I got one such call yesterday:
Me: I’m sorry; you have the wrong number.
Guy: This isn’t Steve?
Me: Nope. Sorry.
Guy: You’re not Steve [last name]?
Guy: So who is this?
Me: Someone else.
Guy: Oh. Sorry.
Me: No problem.
[guy hangs up]
Steve, wherever you are, please stop giving people my number.
