Today I tried to call someone at an international organization near Geneva, and I thought it was little weird that I got a voice in French telling me something like "this voicemail box is full, please hold to talk to an operator." (At an international organization, I expect the voicemail messages to be in English.) And a lady answered in French (again, weird). And I was like, can I please speak to [British name]? And she said, sorry, who are you trying to reach? And I said, is this the IUCN? And she said, [sentence in French].
Yeah. I got my first international wrong number today. I feel bad now for calling some random Swiss company and being like, hi, speak English to me. And find me a person who you do not know.
I figured out the problem after the call - one of the many special features of my handwriting is that 9s and 8s often look the same.
