In kindergarten, I got my first ever phone number from one of my friends. One day I decided to call her and ask her to come over and play, and I was so excited about using the real telephone for the first time. I still don't know if I dialed wrong or if my friend just didn't actually know her number, but when the person on the other end of the line picked up and said, "East Providence Animal Shelter, how may I help you?" with a lot of barking in the background, I freaked out!
I didn't know you could get a wrong number accidentially, and I thought the animal shelter lady would think I was playing a prank or something and be angry, so I was tongue-tied and hung up on her after a couple seconds. I immediately ran to hide behind a chair in the living room and listened for police sirens for a long time. I just knew the lady knew who I was and would send someone after me. It was a long time before I dared to use the phone again!
