The Mystery Caller Revealed... Kind Of Anyway...

Last Friday I posted a short video clip of a rant about someone calling my phone multiple times a day from a blocked phone number.  If you missed it and want to see it, you can take a look at the Video Blog Archives here and it is the first video.  I HATE blocked phone numbers.  Always have.  On my list of top 10 peeves, I think that one ranks pretty close to the top.

I said in the video that the next time they called, I was going to answer it.  At that point I was so aggravated that I was chomping at the bit for them to call.  Low and behold, they called about 15 minutes after I uploaded the video.  Excellent!  I admit my "hello" was probably more of a "WHAT!"  And here's what was said...

Caller: "Can I pleas speak to the owner of the business?

Me in a REALLY irritated voice: "Which business?"

Caller: "Oh, I'm sorry.  Thank You."

And he hung up.

So I have no idea what he was trying to sell.  I have multiple online ventures going on so who knows if I could have (but probably wouldn't have anyway) used whatever he was calling about.  It just really bugs the hell out of me when someone calls with a blocked number.  Multiple times a day.  Like FIVE times a day.  Every day.  Including Saturday and Sunday starting at 8am.  

I do know that I will NEVER again type in my real phone number when I fill something out for a freebie or samples, etc. for my couponing website.  I'm suspicious to the fact that may be where it came from but really can't say beyond a reasonable doubt.

They haven't called back since.  So once again my phone is back to normal.

And it's a peaceful, wonderfully relaxing Monday.

Just as it should be.

Happy Monday!
