    Incoming call on your mobile. You recognise number as the person you swapped numbers with ages ago, but don't know them very well.

    Me: Hello?

    Caller: 'Andy', where are ya?

    Me: At home, why watsup?

    Caller: Sh1t, which Andy is this?

    Me: Andy. Andy Parkins from uni.

    Caller: oh, wrong Andy *Puts fone down*


    No apology no nothing, to make it worse they don't even pretend to cover up the mistake by maybe asking how your doin or sumthing!! I'm using Andy as an example.

    EDIT: Just to clarify, caller assumes I'm Andy, his friend not Andy the lad he met down the pub during some random discussion we swappd numbers. He's stored both of us as Andy in his fonebook but mixed us up.

    I don't think it's happened to me. It's rude not to just say sorry though, that's just common courtesy

    It annoys me when someone puts an ambiguous title in a thread where it's something that's not really that big of a deal.

    So you're not Andy but you are Andy Parkins but then you said that your name isn't Andy??
