We have a landline but only because that’s how we get our DSL. We don’t even have a phone plugged in to our landline most of the time. This morning I realised that I left my cell phone in the car last night and the car is currently parked outside Handsome’s office, so I emailed Handsome and my mom to let them know that if they needed to get in touch they would need to call on the landline, the number to which I don’t even know.
Within 20 minutes of plugging in the phone I got two calls from collection agencies for the people that used to own our number. Almost TWO YEARS AGO. We had this problem when we used to keep a phone plugged in and that’s why I just stopped using it.
One of the men was obviously very skeptical that I didn’t know who Victor Mulano was and I explained that I had owned this number for almost two years and have been getting calls for him ever since. He was like - well, he certainly never changed his number. I was like, uh, if you owed a bunch of money would you bother changing your number?? He then stammered a bit and said - uh, well, I’ll… To which I replied - you’ll make a note of it and not call me again? Thanks.
And I hung up.
I can almost guarantee that I’ll be getting a lot more phone calls throughout the day. I’ll have to come up with some better comback lines.
