    Lightbulb Wrong Number

    when someone calls you, but you are the person he is looking for, what would you say?

    'i'm sorry that you have dialled the wrong number'?

    Sorry, wrong number. There's no such person here.

    You've got the wrong number.

    Hi RK, I'm sure you didn't mean the [that] is optional with the "but"....
    I probably always say: I'm sorry, [but] you have the wrong number
    and of course your other suggestions are right on

    No, I certainly didn't mean to suggest that, Fiona. Thanks for the heads up. I don't even know how it got in there, but then my memory just ain't what it used to be.
