I got a phone number about 3 months ago and on a daily basis, I get one or more recordings on my answering machine from debt collectors for some jackass that used to have this number. I'd change it, but the number's catchy.
After trying to respond to one of the calls in an attempt to make them stop, I got this company's voicemail and left them a polite message. I identified myself, gave my phone number, and asked that they stop calling or that an actual person rather than a machine call to resolve the issue.
So today, I left the following message: "Hello. My name is Ben Williams and my phone number is 703-xxx-xxxx. You call my house on a daily basis, and you are going to stop. I left you a message asking to do as much last week. IF YOU CONTINUE TO CALL MY HOUSE, I WILL DRIVE THE 10 MINUTES FROM MY ADDRESS TO YOUR ADDRESS AND I WILL SCREAM THIS OVER AND OVER AGAIN UNTIL YOU STOP CALLING. Thanks, and have a great night!"
I'm curious what will happen next. I will happily rent a Zipcar and drive to their call center - it's close enough I could do it on my lunch break.
