"Dear Abby" gives the wrong answer in today's column
"Honestly mistaken in Plano, Texas" explained that she'd accidentally dialed a couple of wrong numbers. When no one answered, she just hung up. However, both times, the persons she'd called later called her back.
""The first time," she wrote, "it was an irate mother demanding to know why I was calling her kid's cell phone. She threatened to call the police .... " The second caller also was angry with her. "Honestly mistaken's" question was how to respond when this happens again.
Abby's answer was just to apologize the next time. That was not the best answer, right? If you've been following this blog, you already know the answer. It is so obvious that I'm going to let one of you readers post the answer as a comment, below. :-)
