Is It Safe To Gnaw Through The Straps Now?

I love answering my phone !!!

It is a well known fact that I love spam, especially bank scam spam. I have a new appreciation for phone scams now too. I think I had the best one yesterday.

A number I didn't know came up on my phone. It was a local number, so it could have been one of the kids calling from wherever so I answered it.

I got this fast talking guy from some "travel agency" who told me that I had accumulated a lot of "travel miles". There must be a chip in my car ...

I let him spew for a moment and then asked him a simple question ... "What is my name?" He stopped for a moment so I asked him again "What is my name?"

He hung up on me, I don't think he loves me anymore.

Remind me later to tell you about "Steve".
