I have been at home the last three days.
The phone has run steadily, seven or eight times a day. Almost all the calls have come from “Unknown Name/Unknown Number.” Some have come from “Unknown Name/866-xxx-xxxx.”
One came from “Real Name/Real Number.” It turned out to be “Real Name/Real Wrong Number.”
One came from “Obvious Marketing Name/Real Number.” I actually answered that one. I wanted to compliment them on not disguising their number.
But it was a recording asking me to validate an application for a new mortgage–an application I had not sent.
The Unknowns get to ring over to the answering machine. If they really want to talk with me, they can leave a message.
Surprise, surprise, surprise, no messages.
Caller ID rocks.
