Seriously, why even bother signing up on the No Call list when I still get messages like this left on my machine:
I'll try to type it so you can enjoy the accent :)
Hay Low ~ Dis mezz sage is for May Low Dee Dough ner. I am calling from da Dalleeze Inter Neigh tion all Air A port. We have a certified check for you to claaaaim. It is for Nine Houndret ant fif teeeee thou sint dolllll r's. Pleeeze call dis number .....
then she rattles off a 909 203 number ~ which I do a google search on and it comes up from Saudi Arabia!
Now... granted I would not turn down $950,000.00 if it was legit! Do you think I should call my sister in Ft Worth and have her run over to the Dallas airport and pick up my check? We'll all get together and share my winnings! Yeah!! I'll buy doughnuts!
A few weeks ago I was propositioned for some kinky sexual acts by a man with a very heavy accent ~ the caller ID said it was a call from Jamaica. He called and called ... about 10 messages left on my answering machine. Finally I picked up and told him that I was going to blow the whistle on him if he called my number again.
Guess what I did? I got myself a very shrill sounding dog whistle and have it laying by the phone. Sure enough ... my Jamaica call came again. I told him, "I warned you I was going to blow the whistle on you." AND I blew my whistle! A nice long winded blow ~ you'd be proud.
I hung up.
The phone rings again. Are you serious! That jerk is calling me again! He says, "that wasn't very nice." I said "I know, and what you've been doing hasn't been very nice either."
I hung up again.
I haven't heard from him anymore. I hope that ringing noise in his ears is permanent!
Now if I can just get every Tom Dick and Harry that's running for office to stop calling me during supper.
Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
