Mistaken identity

I was driving home from work just now when I received an SMS. The sender's number wasn't found in my address book, but that wasn't strange seeing as how I'd just lost my mobile phone to thieves last week. The message went like this:

"We are going to A famosa this weekend. Do you want join? - Rachael"

I didn't know any Rachael, so this message evidently wasn't for me. I replied:

"Sorry, think you have sent your sms to wrong number. I don't know a Rachel. Cheers."

Moments later, my phone beeped, indicating another sms. This one read:

"You are eunice right..we all goin to a famosa tis weekend leh..jus ask u go wif us..im travis"

I thought it was pretty funny, so I replied to this travis guy la. Didn't want him to think that "eunice" purposely did not reply his invitation. I said:

"Nope, there's no person named Eunice here. You have a wrong number."

I figured that would get the message across... but boy was I wrong! Another sms came... this time:

"We are going to A famosa this weekend. Hope that you can join us."

At this point in time, I gave up replying. Evidently this travis guy or whoever was sending the sms has no sense whatsoever to check the number that he's sending sms to. Or maybe he thinks "eunice" was playing a belated April Fool's joke on him.

Anyway, I am not going to waste any more money sending "You have a wrong number" sms to him. Heh.

I've actually had SMSes like this before. There was this one, when I said I don't know the person that guy was talking about, he actually got pissed off at me and scolded me with a lot of foul language. Tsk tsk tsk.
