From the blog Two Cents comes this amusing tale of a New York City girl who got a bit more than she bargained for when she changed her cell service. Her new number turned out to be the old number ... of comedian Chris Rock:
I picked up the phone, flipped open the top and questioned, "Uh, hell-o?" "Is Chris Rock there?" Chris Rock?! Of course not! That's ridiculous. "No," I replied. I figured his asking for "Chris Rock" must have been some sort of inside joke with a friend, but he'd dialed my number instead of his friend's by mistake. I continued, "This is my cell phone number -- so you've got the wrong number." "Oh," the caller replied, "I must have dialed wrong." We hung up, and I didn't think anything more of it.
Two days later, I was upstate, cruising around a Wal-Mart parking lot looking for a space (thrilling, I know), when my cell phone rang. A number I didn't recognize appeared on the Caller ID.
Make sure you read the rest of it. One pleasant revelation was that Adam Sandler is as nice and funny off the screen as on (although his films still mostly stink). Laura doesn't use her newfound power for evil, either, although the temptation for mischief must have been pretty hard to resist ... especially with Jack Nicholson's assistant.
Which leads me to this question: if you could get the old cell number of any celebrity, which one would it be? And would you use your powers for evil or for good? Post your answers in the Comments section!Sphere It View blog reactions
