Surprised your a member of a site like this but you didn't realise or know about spoofing caller id and/or telemarketrs doing that...
Posting it in paranormal section makes sense for a member of this site though

I received a strange telephone call at home yesterday. The caller ID showed our home number and me as the caller. I went ahead and picked it up but there was only silence which was probably a good thing because if I had been on the other end I'm not sure what I would have done.
I went to the other phone and called our number just to see what would happen and there was a recorded message that the call could not be completed, please hang up and wait for the other party to answer. I hung up, the phone rang and my spouse waiting at the phone said that the ID said "Incoming Call" with no number. I don't know if other phone systems are the same and the ability to call yourself may be a throwback to ancient party lines. When we moved here many years ago there was an option to get a party line that was less expensive but we have never had a party line and it may not even be an option anymore.
My spouse is worried that it may be some type of omen. I am trying to toss it off as some kind of weird phone thing but the ID showed my nickname, not the name that the phone is registered under. Has anyone else ever had something happen like this? I've heard of phone calls from recently deceased people but never a call from yourself.
