@Scrbblchick -- Wrong numbers that call back. Oh, the agony. I guess they're not prank calls per se, but it doesn't mean I don't want to reach through the phone and choke the caller.
One weeknight morning about 3 a.m., the phone rings. My mom is elderly, so I leap out of bed to answer it, figuring something bad has happened. It's some breathless girl (young) wanting to talk to "Coyote."
"Wrong number," I growled into the phone and hung up. Two minutes later, same thing. Same response.
I looked at the caller ID and saw she was calling from a landline, so I called it, hoping to get a parent on the line. I did. It was her dad. I told him he needed to get his teenage daughter off the phone at 3 a.m. He thanked me for calling and said he would take care of it. Apparently, he did, because I never got another call from someone looking for "Coyote." I like my sleep, too.
