Earlier this afternoon, I dialed a number I thought belonged to an economist and though his answering voice message was brief at the other end (no identifying characteristics), I left a message, explaining the information I needed for an editorial.
About 10 minutes ago, a kind young man called me back to tell me I'd dialed his cell phone by mistake. He didn't say it in a crabby way at all. He did it out of courtesy to a stranger. I thanked him.
The exchange makes me wonder if anything similar has happened to others out there in blog land. We're all ears.
