Strange requests

I do get some strange requests sometimes for the cartoon cards I make for people, yesterdays one was for a guilty Newt! Blink
The best so far was for a Guineapig in a tangle of wool, especially as the Guineapig in question came to visit afterwards to say thank you for his card Laughing

What's the strangest request you've ever had?

KitKatCot's Avatar Phone call:

'Ah, Mavis, can you play the piano tomorrow night?'

Me: If I can't play it now I doubt I'll learn by tomorrow night.

(We have a similar phone number to a lady in our village who does play the piano)Smile

Lily's Avatar KKK's post reminds me of the time when I lived in Bath and our home had a number similar to one of the town's cinemas. Have you got any seats this evening was the question and the response .." would you like the sofa or the armchair"?

Ivy's Avatar "I'd like to order xxx (amount) nuts and xxxx(Amount) bolts and in addition xxxx screws..." we took over the phone number of the previous owner of our house, who was working from home. Every week a man would phone to place an order. No matter how often we told him that the company no longer existed he'd ring the next week. Until I was so fed up that I answered the phone in a baby voice and told him in baby speak that the company went to sleep. He never phoned again. But it took almost 2 years of proper adult conversation!Rolling Eyes

Re:
Faith's Avatar We do have a similar number to a local hotel and I sometimes get 'Is that the Hilton?' - to which I say 'I wish!'. It's not often enough to be annoying.

Re:
Fairy Nuff's Avatar Laughing love the funny phone calls.
By sheer coincidence my family used to have the same phone number as my best friends with dialling codes that were different only by the last digit.

We were forever getting each others phone calls with some interesting conversations as we knew who they were meant to be calling and vice versa.

At one point when my brother was leaving for the RAF he was selling off a pile of sports gear... several wrong numbers later my friends Mum asked him what he wanted for it and ended up selling half of it for him directRolling Eyes
