You Don’t Know Me?

I detest a phone call that begins, “Hi! How are you?” and I haven’t a clue who’s calling.

 

Caller ID makes this less likely to occur, but not all names come through.  So when “Private Caller” started a conversation like this recently, I had no choice but to ask, “Who’s this?”

 

“You don’t know who this is?” says the caller. Now I’m thinking, is it a relative or a friend calling my office? Though I do a quick cranial scan, I’m still clueless.

 

“Sorry. Would you help me out, please?” I politely respond.

 

“C’mon, you have to know!” the caller says, laughing. “How could you forget me? I’m your sister!”

 

[Thanks, universe, for teeing this one up for me.]

 

“Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh,” I draw out my comeback. “I don’t have a sister! You don’t even know your own sister’s voice? And  I identified myself when I answered the phone. Did you forget your own sister’s name?”
