I just thought of this and thought that maybe the mom's of teens might find it interesting.
when DH and I first married we started getting phone messages from the local High school about our daughter getting into trouble, cutting classes and their concern that no one was showing up for the conferences they had set up. Apparently a note was being sent home with this student.
There was one big problem with all this.
We were only 28 at the time, and didn't have a 16 year old daughter! My husband and I must have called that school at least 6 times giving the girls name and telling them that they were calling the wrong number!
Yet the calls kept coming. One to let us know that the girl had been suspended, mentioning that she may not even realize it since she'd not been in school for over a week.
One day my husband comes home and I tell him that I'd heard a message that since we hadn't come in about our 'daughter' then they were going to call social services and see about getting her sent to a foster home!
It all finally stopped when DH went into the school to see the principal.
This girl obviously thought that the wrong number was a stroke of genius, but the fact that her mother came that close to getting turned in for neglect because the school workers couldn't get that they were calling the wrong number makes me nauseous.
I still wonder what happened to that girl when her mother found out.
