sorry, wrong number

What do we do when our phone rings, and it’s someone we went on a few dates with, ages ago? It’s most likely a misdial, but why are we still in his phone (or he in ours)? It’s not like we’re still talking — this isn’t an ex whose DVDs we still have lying around — this is someone who has no reason to call, for whom it would be totally weird to be calling. Better to just let the phone ring and spare him the embarrassment of realizing he’s called by mistake. Now the phone has gone to voicemail, and now there’s a message: a quick hangup. Yep, good choice.
