She gets calls and texts meant for Elon Musk. Some are pretty weird


Tucker, who works at a Sephora beauty store in San Jose, Calif., had never heard of the Tesla and SpaceX founder and CEO until a couple years ago, when she began fielding a steady stream of calls and text messages intended for him.


Turns out, Tucker’s cellphone number used to be registered to Musk. On any given day, she receives at least three calls or texts intended for Musk, whom she has never met.

The fact of having Musk’s old number is not what makes this story. It’s the calls and messages.

For example, she texted back and forth with Pixar/Disney’s John Lasseter, who was trying to reach Musk. Fascinating.
