You guys, my office is a mysterious attractor for wrong numbers.  I don’t know what causes it, but I have gotten so many strange phone calls here since I started my postdoc.  I’ve received phone calls from a debt collecting agency, a Caribbean cruise raffle, and from someone in the next state over who actually asked (before confirming who I was) whether John Doe had any prior offenses as a minor.  These are just a few of the phone calls I’ve gotten, and I really don’t understand why this number is so popular.  Do people give it out as a fake number?  Is it close to a lot of other phone numbers?  Is my office really a paranormal square of mystery in my state?
