The Topic: Do I even need a phone?

 Bloodyegg (8:30 PM)
Today I got one phone call, from someone calling for a person who has the same name as me but isn't me, apparently, and one voice mail message, which consisted of over a minute of background noise of people conversing in Spanish... If I wasn't an atheist, I would think that someone up there is laughing at me...

I used to get calls like that.
And then I just decided to leave my modem connected to my ISP all the time.

Once I go to DSL, though, I guess its back to life insurance offers from my bank and spanish voice mail.

And the Ballet grubbing for money.

And long distance offers.

And why can I subscribe to the paper over the Web, but I need to call a "customer service representative" during freaking working hours to cancel?

And who are these idiots who hear my answering machine message that clearly states my name and yet still ask Joe to call them back?

 Bacon (8:36 PM)
Christ, people!
Get your acts together!

And if I hear one more goddamn local newscaster lead into a story on the flu epidemic with "Now onto some news about a real y2k bug..."

Honey! This bacon is bitter! Why don't you get the honey-maple kind next time?
