Time to update my contacts
Something very strange happened to me yesterday. I was given the landline number of someone I had to call for business reasons. As is usually the case, I dialled the number from my mobile. When I hit the green button to place the call, the name of an ex-colleague popped up. The number I was dialling was already stored under someone else’s name.
When the person answered the phone (actually, their voicemail kicked in), it turns out that I had indeed dialled the correct number, and the number had transitioned to the new organisation.
I even Googled the number to confirm that the number I had stored for my ex-colleague was correct—results matching her company told me that it was.
The company she works for is completely unrelated to the one I was calling. So with 954 telephone numbers in my contact list, what are the chances?
