We had the same phone number for about 16 years in my formative years, and at some point a pizza delivery place opened up in our little town of 2000 people that had the phone number ending in 5701 while we were 5710. People called in way too much for this funny mistake to continue being funny for long. My sister who was older and more mischievous than me (and more able to sound like an employee) would sometimes (once or twice a month?) take an order just for the fun of it (people rarely seemed put off by the fact that we answered "Hello?" instead of "Paul Revere's Pizza"). She was surprisingly convincing, but I think that is because we ordered pizzas from the very same place at least once a week. We rarely ever got a follow up call that I can remember, I assume people either realized they made a mistake or called the right number the second time. I do remember being home a few times when my sister decided to take an order (always good free entertainment) and a follow up call DID come. She would make me answer the phone then, and I would simply tell them they had the wrong number, and I, always being the more straight and narrow of my siblings, was happy in the fact that I was still being truthful.
