I accidentally called myself ?

I often experience weird phenomenons but this one still remains to me unexplained. Maybe someone can tell me what happened? This happened about eight years ago..

In high school each classroom had a telephone that could receive a call from any other room in school as long as that room had a telephone too.

One day during lunch hour, I was inside my art classroom waiting for a call from the office. I was growing impatient so I picked up the phone and tried calling the office instead.

The phones ALWAYS worked, but this time I just heard static. I waited to hear the secretary, but just heard more static so I said, "Hello?" Still nothing. I suddenly got embarrassed and said "Sorry wrong number!" Then I hung up.

Not even a second later the phone rang. I thought it was the office calling to yell at me because it sounded like a student was playing a prank on them.

What I heard instead still confuses me.

I picked up the phone ready to apologize but instead I heard Static.

Before I could say anything I heard someone say in an all too SIMILAR voice, "Hello?" Then more static and breathing.
I couldn't say anything I just froze.

There was more static, and then they said, "Sorry wrong number!" then hung up.

Did the school secretary play a prank on me?

Did someone else call me?

Was that a phone call recording of myself that was played back?

Did I somehow manage to call into the future?

Why did they sound just like me and say the same thing?

Who did I call instead?

I'll never know.

Well, there could be a technical reason for what happened like a recorded playback or something. On another forum I hear plenty of 'glitch in the matrix' stories where the universe does things that do not fit into our normal linear understanding of time and action. Could your anxiety over waiting for the call prompted something like that? I am one that thinks reality is consciousness created (as opposed to physically created) so my theory opens a universe of possibilities for the unexpected.

Sounds like a recording got played back. I?ve had this happen to me before on older land lines, multiple times actually.

I can remember dialing my own number intentionally, back in the day.  It actually went through and made the phone ring.  That was in the 60s though...

You must have had a party line.

Sorry, when gadgets like phones are involved i expect all kinds of odd things are possible, weird, odd, not paranormal,

Well, that was a local phone line. There shouldn't be anything more complex behind than a mini-PBX system, like Panasonic KX-TEB (which I have in my house). The communication unit of these is always analogue, just a bunch of relays, and call recording is usually an optional add-on. I don't imagine anything more complex in a high school 8 years ago. So, frankly I don't know. Sounds more like a prank to me. Or indeed a call from the minute ago.
