Serves Me Right

I called my friends Tony & Deb tonight.  I know I dialed correctly, because my cell phone cheerfully displayed "Tony & Deb" on the screen, because it recognized the number I dialed as the one which has, in fact, reached Tony & Deb on countless occasions.

Except it did not reach Tony & Deb this time.  It reached some dude named Steve.  Steve seemed friendly enough about the problem.  And when I redialed (the phone again telling me I was dialling Tony & Deb), I actually reached Tony & Deb.

Can you still get your wires crossed when there's no wires?

Sounds like a switch at a cell phone company substation had a hiccup. It happens. So long as the error rate is less then 1::100,000 it's acceptable. ;)
