Whenever Mrs. TBF is out of town on business, somebody decides to call me at 7:00 a.m.!!!
Mrs. TBF is in New York for a couple of days, and this morning - the phone rang at about...7:00 a.m.!!! We don't keep a phone in our bedroom, so I might have been dreaming. However, I'm about 99% sure that it was actually ringing.
I ended up getting out of bed, went to the office, and checked the call log on the phone because I thought that maybe it was Mrs. TBF calling me at 1:00 a.m. in NYC. For some reason, there was no number under the "answered" or "unanswered" calls which means that the person decided to hang up before the answering machine picked up the call (or, our phone's not working properly).
Now, I'm not mad or anything....but, please don't call our house this early in the morning unless it's an emergency because I really need my eight hours. And, if you do call us and we don't answer the phone....LEAVE A MESSAGE!
7:00 a.m. phantom caller...IDENTIFY YOURSELF!!!
The mystery is solved. It was a repairman who was calling about setting up an appointment to fix our laundry room ventilation fan. He heard our answering machine message in English and "freaked out." He ended up waking me up by calling on Thursday morning at 7:04 a.m., I managed to somehow mumble some German words and ended up making an appointment for 2:00 p.m. When he showed up later that day, he apologized for about five minutes for waking me up (He seemed to be a little bit afraid of me.).
