Wrong Number Brightens My Day

Last week I needed to renew a prescription, so I punched in the numbers for what I thought was the Kaiser Permanente Pharmacy. A male voice came on asking, “What can I do for you?”


Thinking I had reached a recording, I said in a hesitant voice, “Refill a prescription?”


The male voice chuckled, “I can’t do that. In fact, it would probably be illegal.”


Seems I had misdialed and reached a call service for a plumbing company inOhio. The gentleman asked me where I was calling from. “Loveland,Colorado.”  Another chuckle. “Well, I could arrange for a plumbing house call for you, but the travel expenses might be prohibitive.”


We both shared a hearty laugh. A lovely way to begin my day!

  1. Love your sense of humor!

  2. A good laugh always make a day brighter. Good for you - and the kind plumber - to be open to that and not grumpy or irritated about having made mistake.

    I always believe, when poeple are challenged to be negative or positive, they usually rise to the latter.
    That's what keeps us all on our happy toes.
