I also can't upgrade your satellite service

In order to track which specific ad people that call us have looked at, each ad typically has its own 1-800 number. We have, in total, about 20 numbers I'm told. This of course leads to wrong numbers, and no matter how much I enunciate:
"Thank you for calling Pine Valley Apartments. This is Mike"
I am always met with
"I would like to order Elton John tickets!"

And when I tell them that they're talking to an apartment complex, there's always this moment of disbelief where they ask again, as if I'm some Ticketmaster agent playing a joke on them.

Update: Elton John tickets must have just gone on sale, because in the last few minutes, I've gotten 5 wrong number calls.
