a scoldy but a goody

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 12:51 pm

Common Scold Monica Bay passes on some good advice (from Larry Bodine):


Do Not Call List:  register your cell phone number on the national

Do Not Call list so that your precious billing minutes don’t get sucked

up by telemarketer calls. It’s truly painless, and takes about 30 seconds

to do (I just did it) — call 1-888-382-1222

afterthought (3 PM): Kevin J. Heller writes to remind us that the rumor about

cellphone numbers being given to telemarketers is false.

are you calling the wife?
scolding her?

 


scolding the cricket
in my sleep…

  3. I proclaim myself to officially be the worst haiku writer ever. What I meant to say was:
    an email has been recently making the rounds saying that cell phone numbers are going to be given to telemarketers — according to cnet — that information is simply not true.
