Today, I realized that I accidentally said my phone number wrong when I was giving it to a really smart, cute guy with all the same interests as me that I met at a bar last night. I'd had a few drinks and had gotten the middle three digits mixed up. FML
If you remember how exactly you mixed the numbers you may try to call the person and ask them nicely to give your number to the guy when he calls. No guarantee that the owner of the number will do as you ask, but worth trying.
It depends upon how keen he is, only 120 to 1000 combinations depending on whether any of the middle three digits was the right number but in the wrong place.
He's not gonna know it's the middle digits though is he?
See, that's one thing that couldn't happen to me. a), I don't like bars etc so I'll probably never be asked for my number anyway, and b), I don't have it memorized and thus need to look it up when I give it to someone. At least something that'd be useful for.
I've bever understood this. I thought it was common practice to dial the number once after it's been given to you to make sure you got it right. That way if there's a problem it can be fixed on the spot
he's probably going to write a fml as well saying he was given the wrong number by someone he thought he had a connection with
Next time, let him write an sms to himself from yours.
