Actual conversation with my father, on my cell phone about the difference between my work number and cell phone number...my voice mail message on my cell says "You've reached Kelsey from the Daily O'Collegian..." Apparently, this has left my father quite perplexed...
Uncle Pat: Kelsey? I'm here with your father, and he is quite confused about which number he calls when he calls you. Which number is this?
Me: This is my cell phone. He doesn't have any other number of mine.
Uncle Pat: Well, he seems to think he's calling your work number. Here, you talk to him.
Dad: KELSEY?! Where are you right now?
Me: I'm at work right now, dad.
Dad: Well, I need to fix your number in my phone. I don't know how I got your work number in here...
Me: You don't. You called my cell number.
Dad: Well, how am I supposed to get a hold of you then?
Me: *facepalm* Call THIS NUMBER, Dad.
Dad: But...how about I hang up and call you right back, and you tell me what number I called?
Me: Dad...you have basically already done this. It's my cell phone, not work.
Dad: Okay, good, I'm going to call you right back and you tell me which number it is.
Me: Shit, fine, dad.
About six minutes later, I called him...
Me: Dad! I thought you were going to call me right back so I could tell you that you had my cell number in your phone, not my work number??
Dad: Oh, did you want me to do that right now?
Me: Oh.my.gawd. Yes, I did. I'm at work, I don't have time for this.
Dad: But if you're at work, how are you talking to me right now?
Me: I can't do this. I'm done.
Dad: I'm going to call you right back, and you tell me if I've called your work number or not.
Me: Dad, it's my cell phone, I promise.
Dad: Well, let me just see.
Again, five minutes pass...and then my cell phone rings...
Dad: Did I call your work number?
Me: No, dad, you called my cell phone. You have the right number in there.
Dad: Well, let me write down your work number so I have it...
Me: No, dad. You don't need that.
Dad: Well how am I supposed to get a hold of you when you're at work?
Me: I'M AT WORK RIGHT NOW AND YOU'RE TALKING TO ME.
Dad: On your cell number or work phone?
Me: I'm hanging up now.
Dad: Oh good cause Uncle Pat is still here and I need to visit with him instead of talking on the phone.
