    Your cell phone (telemarketers)

    For your cell phones -

    In case you have not already done this:

    REMINDER....9 days from today, all cell phone numbers are being
    released to telemarketing companies and you will start to receive sales
    calls.

    ......YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THESE CALLS
    To prevent this, call the following number from your cell phone:
    888-382-1222.
    It is the National DO NOT CALL list. It will only take a minute of your time.
    It blocks your number for five (5) years.
    You must call from the cell phone number you want to have blocked.
    You cannot call from a different phone number.



    I dont know if anyone is interested in this, but thought i would share it.
    YEAH, IM THE BERRIES, AND CHERRIES IN YOUR REAR VIEW MIRROR.

    Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
    Eat it, Play with it, or piss on it, and walk away!

    As smart as man is, we haven't been able to invent a machine that can smell drugs or tell us where a person has walked,Ē Dogs are sophisticated investigative tools!

    My cellphone's turned off, haven't paid it. By the time I do my number will probably be recycled.

    For whatever reason, I've had a community college call me 2 times a week. It's not even a real person calling!

    My number was recycled from a substitute teacher, there was a couple months there when she would get calls to come in to sub.. it was tempting to tell them that she wasn't available, but I'd come in. I can just hear the stories the kids would tell.

    When I work dispatch I get at least 3 calls a night from telemarketers. It's like wtf, do you not realize when I pick up the phone and the words out of my mouth include police department, that we don't want your shit.
    Thereís a promise I need you to make
    While Iím gone you take care of the love
    And Iíll deal with the hate.

    Donít worry about me; Iíll be all right
    Just care for your children and sleep tight
    Iíll keep you safe on my watch tonight

    They can still call you they just have to word the calls different.

    I remember getting calls like that in dispatch... The worst part was that there are several desks and multiple, sequential lines. The damn calls would move through the office!

    But now I get the occasional fucking Spanish telemarketing call on my cell phone...
