Musty Number, Musky Calls

Lyndsay Tucker, a skincare consultant at a Sephora beauty store in San Jose, California, knew all about popping pimples and unclogging pores, but little about vehicles. So imagine her consternation when a South African businessman called her to buy 1,000 trucks. But that wasn’t the only one—commendation for a “magnificent car” followed, as did inquiries about purchasing an ATV she had supposedly “showed off during a CyberTruck reveal”. Turns out her telecom company had reassigned Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk’s old number to her—she receives at least three calls a day meant for Musk. Poor Lindsay, she didn’t even know who Musk was until this incident, let alone his loony ravings on Twitter. The most surprising thing: no one has yet called to ask what is up with Musk trying to name his son XÆA-12.
