beware the telephone solicitors

they figured us out. they know we’re monitoring via the message machine. last night and again today, a call came through. i didn’t recognize the name on the caller ID thingy. when the machine came on, the person said, “linda? are you there? linda?” now i didn’t recognize the voice, but thought, omy! could be a real call. so i answered. it was a goddamn magazine subscription solicitation! i quickly made my escape. tonight, same caller ID, different person yelling into my machine, “hello — hello — [switched from speakerphone to handset] — HELLO!”

be ye all warned. they are getting desperate and devious.
