We get many, many calls every single day (can you tell I hate this part of my job) asking us for directory assistance. So, if all else fails, call your local library.

That happens at the newspaper, too.

Last week, I got an automated call from Discover card warning us of possible fraudulent use of these frauds' credit card.

I will never EVER consider having a Discover card after all the button punching necessary to get past their thoroughly annoying menu to talk to a person.

When asked to verify my account number, I said, "The only thing I can tell you about the cardholders is their names and that they're frauds who keep giving out a phone number that hasn't been theirs for nearly two years."

After a few other questions, the agent agreed that she'd remove our phone number from their account.

I'm starting to pick up the phone gleefully anymore. This is getting to be fun!

When we moved into our current apartment two years ago, we decided to get a landline unfortunately the deadbeat who lived here before us happens to share the same last name and somehow got added to our phone account. She has horrible credit and nine out of ten calls are for her. Most of the bill collectors think I'm lying when i say that yes this is the _____ residence but no one by that name lives here and they refuse to remove us from there list. To make matters worse she never had her address changed we get all of her mail, even her W-2!

Yep, not as many calls a day, but I still get at least 1 a week. Very annoying.

That would truly suck, WeirdF.

Yeah, of course, they're not going to believe you when you say no one by that name lives there. We've had somewhat the same problem.

Fortunately, the addresses are different in our case, so thankfully they get the dunning letters while we only get the phone calls.

You'd be surprised by how many wrong numbers I get on my cell. Last month some one keep sending nude pics even though I told her she had the wrong number and I wasn't "Tyrone". My husband response was "Hey she's hot and you're bi, call her!"
