They live among us! Scarie!!!!!

Now I have never claimed to be a rocket scientist, or any extremely smart person,but some things are very clear.Or so I thought until today.
We got a new resident in the home earlier this week.He came from the assisted living home in town via the hospital.
Today his son come over with the new residents telephone from his old place.The son plugged it into the phone jack,took out his cell phone and dialed his dads phone number.He looked at his phone looked at me and said it's ringing but not here,do I have it hooked up correctly? I checked things out and soon confirmed all was correct.I then went on to ask if he had contacted the phone company to have them switch over the phone.He told me it is the same phone, and the phone number is the same so it should ring here. I tried to explain to him that he needed to contact the phone company and let them know about the move.He went on about but the number should be the same.Again I explained to him....yes but you have to have the phone company switch the phone from his old place of living to here.
Ohhhhhh I guess I will call them then.
Duhhhh!!!! And I think the demented are off at times.
Yes these people live among us.

Wow...I just ran into a couple the other night...well, actually at 4 in the morning. Let's just say my patience runs short when I'm tired...they were trying to tell dispatch where they lived. First they started out as 906...but they said it looks like 609. So we respond to 906..back into the driveway and then dispatch promptly tells us that it's actually we respond to 609. A dark house with locked doors..nobody answers. I communicate this to dispatch and they call the people back...Oh, it's 906 and they said that you're not there....Well duh!!
