Who was the woman on Dad's Mobile Phone?

Updated on September 27, 2012


A wife was at home preparing lunch for the family. Her husband was at work which was just 10 minutes away by car. She asked her 7 year old daughter Zara, to call her dad on the mobile phone and ask him to come home for lunch.

The girl dialled the number and after a few minutes, told her mother another woman answered the phone.

Her mum was fuming. “He had another woman nearby. He was having an affair” she thought. As soon as he got home from work that day, she confronted him and started a quarrel with him, accusing him of cheating on her.

They were in the kitchen and their daughter Zara could hear their raised voices from her bedroom. She walked slowly to the kitchen and when her mum spotted her, she asked Zara what the woman on the phone said.

Zara replied: "The woman said the number you are calling is switched off."

It was an automated voice response on the phone.

      ** Hi Hello Hello, glad you stopped by. Thanks.

      ** JDove-Miller - I agree. It pretty much describes how our minds work. Best Wishes.

      ** Thanks Philipo - Compared to Africa, I know this is a piece of cake. People accuse wive/inlaws of all sorts. You know what I mean.... the "spiritual" aspect. etc. Take care.

      ** Thanks Vladimir - Hope all is well.

      ** Cheers Dexter - Thanks for sharing those wise words. "look before you jump".

      ** Patkay - I like that word "careful". I've seen a case where a lady saw her boyfriend talking to a lady and she turned on the lady insulting her, only to find out she was a family member - that she had not met before. Ouch!
