In the past few days, I’ve received a number of calls on my cell phone from a number that identifies itself as “Unknown.” They call three to five times per day, never leaving a voicemail.

If this person happens upon this site (chances are they won’t, but what’s the loss in trying?), let me make this very clear: I never, ever pick up calls from unidentified numbers. And if no voicemail is left, I have no way to tell who this caller is.

My number is on the do-not-call list, and I would like this caller to know that, if and when I get the number, I plan on collecting my $50 each time you call me.

Rant over – more positive stuff coming soon.

(ETA: I finally picked up one of these calls. Turns out it was a direct marketing firm from Nevada, looking for a different person altogether. They apologized – and no calls since, touch wood.)
