I got to work almost exactly on time (I was two minutes early ;-D) and after less than 10 minutes a 24X-XXXX number was calling me... on my work phone

Ansam: Aloo
Isaac: Aloo.. salam alaikom
Ansam: ISAAC????
Isaac: Yes its me.. there is a problem, you see... the maid gave me some money to take
Ansam: Wait wait wait wait.... where did you get this number from?
Isaac: I thought I was calling home?!
Ansam: No!!!! you are calling me at work!! Where did you get this number from Isaac?
Isaac: No problem, no problem.. sorry to bother you.. but there is a problem
Ansam: What problem?
Isaac: I am trying to transfer money but there are missing info...
Ansam: And how can I help you on that????? (still puzzled on how he managed to call me at work)
Isaac: Spelling
Ansam: I dont know the spelling of her name or yours... or any of you at home!
Isaac: What to do now!
Ansam: Isaac!!! I dont carry your passports around all the time... still I dont know why and HOW you managed to call on this number
Ansam: BYE!
Isaac: Bye!!!

HE DID NOT ANSWER MY QUESTION YET! Not even when he picked me up from work! Its Annoyingly freaky!

Sorry Purgatory, but he has to answer.

not only is he calling you on work .. he is saying he thought he is calling home?

I say beware. if he is calling it out of his memory, why does he memorize your work phone but didnt memorize your home phone?

If he is calling from a saved number on his mobile, why did he save your work number?

O if you gave ur phone once to a maid at ur house, rest assured kil ilee bel fereej will know about it!

Anyways it is fishy, especially that he must know you cant help him. Maybe he is looking for his passport o he thought your parents are keeping it safe in your office?

Ansam said...

Yeah ok :-)

I stopped explaining myself to purg long time ago LOL

Daddy's Girl-
It is fishy... my sister told me maybe she gave him my office number loooong time ago (MAYBE) but I dunno! Once the driver from work paid his condolences to me when my uncle died (not the same last name as mine) I still wonder how he knew! I didnt even know he knew my name!

You have a Purgtitis

You think?
