DO NOT CALL THIS NUMBER

When I was in high school, the phone book came out (this was before the internet).  BellSouth had neglected to put a phone number after Kmart.  So the listing was:

Kmart.......................................................
Knapp......................................................and my phone number.

So when the phone book got delivered, people started calling me and asking really strange questions...so I answered them...

"What's the special?" What do you think I'm selling.
"What are your hours?" We are open 24 hours a day...just bang on the doors and we'll let you in.
"Is my prescription ready?" Nope. Call back tomorrow.

Most people would hang up and then call back to and ask to speak to the manager.  Which I guess was me.  

Please NOTE:  People never asked if "This was Kmart" if they did I said "no" and hung up.

After several months of phone calls, I went into Kmart and there was a HUGE sign with my phone number on it and the words "Do NOT call this number.  Our correct phone number is....."  

People still sometimes call...
