This picture is a shout out to my big sis, who wishes we could just go back to the rotary dial era sometimes.
Today, I got two phone calls. One from "Out of Area" 5-062-266-8329. I think "Out of Country" is more like it. No one I know from out of the country, has my phone number. I didn't pick it up.
The second call was from GSA 1-281-220-0620. I wasn't here for this call, but wouldn't have picked it up anyway.
Both numbers belong to telemarketers hawking insurance or lower interest rates. The first one is freaky because it's a company in Indonesia that is doing the calling for a bank here in the US. The one in the US is from an insurance scammer in Houston.
Anyway, I thought I was signed up for the National Do Not Call list. Evidently not. You can now sign up 3 different phone numbers (including cell #'s) for free. If you think you've already signed up, but don't remember, you can check that too.
Also, the 3 year time limit is no longer valid. You don't have to remember 3 years down the road to reregister. It's forever.
Just doing my part to keep your dinner time and your favorite shows from being interrupted.
If you're a bit worried about putting your phone number on the world wide web, or giving it to a government agency, don't be---they already have it.
