That used to be an urban myth. Very popular in the 60's & 70's.
Then there was the "I knew someone who..." stories.
Then the phone rang. This was in the days before caller ID. My grandmother picked up the phone. It was her brother-in-law. He said "Sorry." and the
line went dead. I was close enough I heard the crackle on the phone line (that happened a great deal, and distance made a difference. So did
payphones. Cellphones were NOT invented. This all worked through hard lines, land lines.)
No one thot much of it. He wasn't the most reliable character, he'd be late all the time. So, the family is there, including my great aunt. Mind
you, her husband just called, saying he was sorry.
The police came about an hour or so later. He had died in a wreck. Everyone is sad, understandably. The there was a discrepancy in time frames. Did he
or didn't he call? Before or after the accident? It couldn't have him, he was dead.
It was a topic that came up. Then just got added to the list of "I knew someone who" stories.
Be happy. She is still with you. Take it as a compliment. And no, if the number is an inactive number, I'm pretty sure no one can crank-call you from
