What started as a phone number dialing error has blossomed into an unexpected relationship between two people.

The error was a misuse of area code

The Rhodes Island, US resident said each time Gladys, a resident of Florida, calls him by mistake, she would hang up until he stopped her one day.
The kindhearted man said he suggested to Gladys that they know each other well since she kept making the mistake despite him clarifying that it is a wrong number.
"Her daughter lives in Maryland (area code 410 vs 401) she kept calling saying OMG I have the wrong number and would hang up quick. I finally stopped her before she hung up and said hey if we're gonna talk like this we might as well get to know each other," he wrote.

They kept conversing for years without a physical meet-up
Mike told USA Today that their relationship blossomed after their first real conversation despite the 30 years age gap between them.
Gladys would call to enquire about the well-being of his family or the weather report over where Mike resides, gestures he also reciprocated.
Their relationship was so serious that when Gladys lost her husband, she told her son to call Mike who upon hearing the sad news sent condolences and flowers.
Their first meet-up
Mike, a father of five, never really considered a first meet-up until the opportunity seemed to present itself.
Legit.ng gathered that Mike and family decided to spend the thanksgiving in Florida, he also used the opportunity to look for school for his eldest daughter.
While driving around one Wednesday, Mike realized that Gladys house was only 2.3 miles away and decided to pay her a surprise visit.
