Just received a random call on my mobile. The guy didn’t in any way ask who I was, just launched into telling me that “Alicia” has been caught truanting and smoking.
Well- as I don’t have any children assume this wasn’t really meant for me and had to be quite forceful in getting this across to stop him continuing!
No harm really done - I have no idea what school it was, who the kid is etc, but made me think - imagine that was your child and they perhaps called on your work number, or if they got the parents numbers muddled etc.
So aibu to say that they really should check they’re speaking to the right person first.
I've had this - someone spent a few weeks giving out my number instead of hers. Her child was ill and they wanted me to collect him from school. I didn't even know which school otherwise I might have considered it! At that point I'd had calls from her garage, granny, work, other child's school, and multiple other people all insistent the number I've had for 20-odd years wasn't mine. I'd've collected him and kept him until she'd learnt her own bloody phone number
