I Am Number 6, Darnit

I listen to KNBR sports radio a lot, including usually when I'm out for my afternoon walk. They have contests in the form of "caller X wins prize Y." While I was out this afternoon, I heard the sounder for the contest and reached for my phone, where I have their contest number on speed-dial. I am of course not the only person who has done that, and in fact I've never got through before. Today the phone actually rang instead of sounding a busy or all-circuts-engaged signal.

Alas, I was caller number six when they wanted caller number 9. Had I been the correct caller, I would have won a $50 gift card from Target, which could have been handy.
