Ring, Ring, Ring - Is this the party to whom I am speaking?

We got rid of our land line about a year ago, even though we listed with do not call, we continued to get calls, primarily from people either too drunk or too stupid to dial a phone.

It's 3:00 AM - who's this the caller would say? It isn't Hillary I would say, who are you calling? What else can you say when someone says who is this? I'm sure as hell not going to tell them my name, SSN and checking account number.

We used go always get these calls after the bars closed.....Is Dave there? It was like every night. I wanted to ask him if he was Tommy Chong but I just said "Dave's not here"

So now, NK is getting calls on her cell for Marie. Maybe it's a time space continuum thing and the caller is looking for Marie Curie; maybe a clue to cure dysentery. Perhaps she should play along a little, could be it is a call for Marie Antoinette and it could be to warn her of her impending execution.

Nah, probably just another drunk with fat fingers!

I'm getting odd calls on my nana phone lately too... maybe I should answer.

I seem to be a magnet for those strange calls...
