you answer the phone and someone asks for your husbands ex wife.

The extra awkward moment when you realize that it's not even your husband's phone that they called, but your own cell phone.

Of course, he's on his cell, so I had to have the guy call back so I don't even know what it was about! Man L's gonna get a kick outta this.

Oh goodness, that's funny.

The first time I flew down to NC to visit dh, he was still living in the house he had lived in with bm previously. We ordered pizza one night, and I answered the door. The delivery woman asked me how I was doing, which in and of itself isn't strange, and then she asked me how the kids were doing (and they weren't with us that night). I'm guessing she had delivered pizza to the house before, remembered the family and thought I WAS bm. Granted, it was dark and I'm only a shade taller than bm, but other than that we don't look very similar (different hair colours, different body types, etc.) I kind of awkwardly said, "They're um... good?" (I hadn't met the kids yet - we had only been dating for a couple of months and the separation was still somewhat new) and wished her a good night.

I figured, in that case, it would be less awkward to just roll with it rather than explain the separation/impending divorce, and the fact that I was dh's Canadian girlfriend visiting for a couple of weeks.

If she is behind on something they will track down everyone!!! I once got a call from a collection agency for an aunt I haven't seen since I was 13!

The best part was the guy didn't believe me that I wasn't her. I had to say "No, I'm her ex husband's new wife...." lol

I'm glad I'm the first wife. If someone mistook me for one of these dumb broads I'd go ape****.

We have gotten tons of collection calls for hubby's ex over the years. Mail for her too. We don't even live at the same place they lived together or have the same phone number. But I was told by one of the collectors that they have access to a huge database and cross reference people with potential relatives and friends, sometimes even neighbors. So when she bought some appliances on credit a year or so ago they were calling us when she didn't make payments!

I don't even know how that woman has any credit at this point. She has evictions, unpaid loans, car repossession, and all kinds of furniture and appliance places that have called because she doesn't make payments. I don't even know what she does spend her money on! lol Now when they call I just say nope, she never lived here...its hubby's ex but I have contact info for her. Then I give out her relatives numbers

yeah.. in our case SHE has credit because everything she did she put in DH's name. Car loans, credit card, over drawn bank accounts... house foreclosure... all in DH's name. She saved hers while trashing his.

fun eh? There's a reason he's always down my back about whether things are paid... a good one.

BM's mother used to get annoying phone calls from a collection agency for me. She would bring it up during the exchange and I felt bad because I didnt even know I owed anyone, but I had no idea what to do. One day she brought me the phone number and I called them. Turns out it was for a bill that I had paid, and proof that I paid. They shouldn't have been calling anyone. I asked them why they were calling my husbands, ex wifes mother and they couldnt tell me. I googled myself and it showed that I was "possibly related" to BM in the white pages, and BM lived at home with her mother into her adult years, so I'm sure her mothers phone number was listed as hers. It was frustrating to say the least. SD's GM said she kept telling them I dont live there ect, but they didnt believe her.

Yeah it just baffles us... our phones are Pay as you go phones. Nothing fancy or special, no bill in the mail. So it had to be something I filled out online in DH's name that had my cell number on it (even our bank doesn't have MY cell number).

And I don't think he's mentioned the call to L yet either. Slacker man.
