Remember the days before cell phones? Well, depending on how old you are, you might not.
In those days, you had to memorize your friend's numbers instead of just having them saved in your phone. And, it wasn't a private number that went straight to your friend's room (unless they were very cool). Usually, your friend's parents would answer the phone, and you'd have to ask politely whether you could talk to your friend.
Kids these days don't quite know how lucky they have it: never having to wonder whether your crush was secretly listening in on a 3-way call, being able to use the Internet and the phone at the same time, and not having to wait forever if you had a rotary phone and the number you were dialing had a 0 in it.
And, of course, there was always the danger of accidentally calling the wrong number. But, somehow, that annoyance has made its way to modern times as well.
Most of the time, receiving a wrong-number text or call is pretty uneventful.But when these people received texts from wrong numbers, they actually ended up having a great time! Get ready to smile and have your faith in humanity restored.

Then the person who received the message said they'd come to visit the baby.
They even brought gifts!
