Had a bit of fun tonight. About two months ago we switched our daily
delivery of the AAS newspaper to weekend ONLY service. The papers were
piling up, unread, just after our newborn son arrived. I hated just
taking the paper out of the plastic shell and dumping it directly
into the recycling. So, we switched our service over (maintaining the
weekend paper which got read more often). We've had AAS delivery for
over 4.5 years here, so obviously I was expecting this...
Starting yesterday (12/27) we started getting calls from them. Thank
goodness for our Caller*ID service, we were able to screen the calls and
avoid the annoying people...
Here's the log ...
< Wed Dec 27 18:58:32 (512) 445-3453 American States Hangup
< Thu Dec 28 18:45:53 (512) 445-3453 American States Hangup
"Hangup" indicates the answering machine picked up, but no message was left...
Yea, I have some software that interfaces with the Rochelle Caller*ID box
to our computer...
< Thu Dec 28 20:19:05 (512) 445-3453 American States 0:22
Then I figured, I would have a little fun, since this was the second time in
a two hour period (interrupting our quiet evening watching video taped movies)
and the call when something like this...
[ring ...] [ring ...]
[picking up the phone]
Me: "I don't want to switch back to daily delivery..."
AAS: [in a perplexed voice] "Hi, this is Melanie from AAS, you must get ...
uhhhh, lots of calls ..."
Me: "Yes, and don't ever call back." [click]
I think that was so much fun!
