Public phone box

When I was 15 and shopping in town with a friend when I should have been working on a school project with the same friend, I walked past a public phone box just as it started ringing. I 'dared' my friend to answer the phone. She 'double-dared' me. I opened the door, answered the phone 'hello?' and my mum said 'hello charlotte. Are you coming home for dinner?'. I was so surprised I confessed all. It turned out that the phone box had the same number as my friend's home number bar one digit. My mum had misdialled and inadvertently called the phone box that I just happened to be walking by.
