Then I Got to Thinking That Maybe I Am Julie and Don’t Know It

Co-Worker: Hello?
Voice on phone: Is Julie there?
Co-Worker: No. I’m sorry, but you have the wrong number.
Voice on phone: Oh, okay. Sorry.
Co-Worker: No problem.

Phone immediately rings again.

Co-Worker: Listen, man, you have the wrong number.
Voice on phone: Are you sure this is your number? I checked, and this is the same number that my friend Julie gave me. Could you call your number and ask her to call me back?
Co-Worker: Sure, just as soon as I get off the phone with you. [Hangs up phone] Jackass.
