Best response to "how did you get my number?"

In the age of the internet i'm still perplexed that people are still surprised at how i we were able to get their numbers.

My response is usually up front and i'll say somethine like "oh i got your number through Zoom info its an open source connector that connects with Linkedin, but the reason for the call was blah blah blah".

depends on the mood, a lot of times I say "Not the yellowpages" and I'd wait for them to chuckle & move the call along.

100 - "It was the number my company gave me...pause...pivot...." if they are still weird/angry for whatever reason just apologize and say "I just joined, I'll edit the notes so this doesn't happen again...anyway now that I have you on the phone..." if still angry/weird probably not a DM anyway and move on with your day.
