Awkward text message conversation with a stranger

Just a few minutes ago, I started getting text messages from someone fairly local. I had no idea who they were. I’ve edited the grammar and structure to make it easier to read — you know how some people type their text messages.

Stranger: (I have no service.) Next week, I’m pretty free. Let’s get together. Oh yeah, do you think you can bring that $80 I let you borrow for the wicked ticket to work tomorrow?

Me: What? Who’s this?

Stranger: I will call you later. If not, I will see you tomorrow. Have a good one. Love you.

Stranger: This is ********

Me: This is Bryan – you got the wrong person.

Stranger: Oh, sorry.

I’m just trying to figure out how s/he was text messaging if s/he had no service. Maybe s/he was at a computer. Oh well, I thought it was pretty funny.
