Wrong Number... Asshole

So I accidentally dialed a wrong number today. It happens from time to time and it's annoying to a slight degree for the person who gets the mis-dialed call, I get that. Anyway, the phone rang and an unfamiliar voice picked up . I looked at my screen and saw my mistake. I said into the phone, "Oops, I've dialed the wrong number, I'm sorry." and hung up the phone. I then called the person I was actually trying to reach. While I was on that call another call came in, I ignored it. Afterwards I checked the voice mail from the missed call and was delighted to find this:

Well naturally I had to call him back and see what this was all about. I rang, he answered:

Old Guy: Hello
Me: Hello there, to whom am I speaking?
OG: I'm the guy you hung up on like an asshole.
Me: Huh, Well I' Thomas, as you know, and I am pretty sure that I explained I had dialed the wrong number when I called you and I apologized for it as well.
OG: I didn't hear anything, you just hung up, and that's why you got the classification you did.
Me: Well I'd like to apologize again and thank you for taking time out of your busy day to classify me as well.
OG: Fine.
Me: Have a good day.
OG: ...
Me: Asshole.

I hope I hear from OG again, he was my kind of dude!

I agree with many that Project Fi is still in its early stages, in “Project” mode, and has not been around long enough to work out all the kinks. The things some people say it offers that other services don’t (cross device calls and texts) can be achieved for free with Google Voice and there is very little difference to the end users. The biggest things Project Fi has going for it are these two things:

1. WiFi Assistant

This could/should be huge… like really super duper huge. Free high speed WiFi all over the place. Stream and browse at will! That said I’ve been on Project Fi for 4 months and have only had 3 or 4 keys. This needs to improve drastically in order to mitigate the large price increase people coming from far more data friendly plans would…
