    After my workout today, I was getting in my car to head home for lunch, and noticed a slip of paper under my driver's side windshield wiper. I retrieved it and found a guy's name and phone number written on it. I immediately thought someone had hit my car and was leaving contact info, so I got out and surveyed my car...no damage. When I got home and showed the note to my partner of 41 years, his first words were, "Oh, you've got a date!"

    I have no clue as to who left the note, but curiosity is now getting the better of me. Do I call the number?

    I wouldn't call the number, but if your curiosity is getting very uncontrollable then I guess you should quell your concerns but calling the number (or maybe texting).

    Hmm.. Some possibilities..
    - A date
    - Some guy that wants to buy your car
    - Some guy that wants to sell you something
    - Or maybe some guy actually hit your car, but you just haven't noticed

    Proceed with caution. Hide your caller ID just in case.

    Well it sounds like your partner has a pretty good sense of humor about him. Congrats to HIM for not playing the jealous card.
    Perhaps you should call it. If, for no other reason, to inform the person that whatever his intentions, you are taken.

    Isn't it *67 that you dial before calling and it blocks your phone number from caller ID?

    Anyway, I would call and find out what's up. You never know, it could be something you didn't expect.

    Maybe someone thinks you're a sinner and you need to be saved.

    I used to get that a lot here in the Midwest.

    -I then discovered I could easily post the number all over craigslist, A4A, etc... for hookups.

    If you got to the car after him, how did the guy from the gym know it was your car to put the note on, unless he's stalking you? Hmmm?

    Yes you call and tell the guy that you are flattered but you have a partner. If he is looking for friends I more than happy to be that with you

    But do invite him to cocktails with your partner.

    Yeah I'd be curious about that myself - I guess he left his full name? Or is it just his first name?

    Try googling the number, just put it in the searc filed in the xxx-xxx-xxxx format. It is probably a cell number, but you may get an address.

    If you call him, just talk and say thanks and leave if you want.

    Keep your partner well informed.

    I would be very curious, but I know I would probably chicken out calling thinking of all the terrible things this unknown person could be- stalker, car thief, home invader, axe murderer, telemarketer, Herbalife salesman.

    Yes, I've met rigsby and his partner together at their lovely home, and had dinner with them. A more secure & happy couple you cannot meet.

    But curiosity might tempt a call, just to determine what this is about. I would take the precaution, however, of masking the originating phone number, as mentioned above.

    Just be careful, if they know what kind of car you drive, that means it's someone who has been watching you (maybe someone you know, maybe not) but if you ignore it, that may bring on a flurry of more notes or get worse (they may follow you)...I would call from a blocked number and politely explain to them that I was in a relationship.
