wrong number

a few days back i got a call from an unknown number. i received and said -
caller: hello, tareq sir?
i got confused. nobody is supposed to call me with a sir. in bangladesh people use this title only to the teacher or someone superior in the office. anyway i thought any of my friends is jokin. so i replied - yes, tareq speaking.
caller: sir, it's me. do you recognize me?
- no, i'm sorry. i dont. who is it?
the caller just ignored the question and said - sir, are you still in iut?
huh! i have passed last year i thought - no, im not in iut anymore.
the caller got surprised - really! sir you still dont recognize me?
- no. :-S.
caller: weren't you in iut?
- yes.
caller: i was your student sir.
i got totally confused. because i was a student in iut. not a teacher.
- may be you did a mistake. i am tareq and i was in iut. but i wasnt a teacher there.
a little pause from the other side - oh! im sorry then.

how on earth somebody thought me i was a teacher???? :-? hmmmmm.

I think he/she confused you with Tareq sir. I feel sorry for you my firend. He isn't the best to be confused with...

BTW, was the caller a male or a female? i'm guessing a male since he was a student in IUT.
