An open letter to those in the universe conspiring against me

STOP IT ALREADY!!!!!!!

There. I feel much better.

As some of you know, this is crazy season for me. I wish I could *just* have Christmas to deal with. Frankly, it gets scaled back every year, and I'm fine with that. But it's a busy time for those of us gearing up for tax season, and somehow I ended up teaching two classes. UGH. And then, we are moving our boards to a new platform, which is great, but again, more work! Add in all my regular stuff, and I'm going crazy.

So today, on a day with lots of icky white stuff falling, when I have no place to go except to teach tonight, the only day I have in my schedule to sleep in, WHY WHY WHY won't people leave me alone?

No one ever calls. I kinda like it that way. Silence is golden. Today, the phone has not stopped ringing. Is it anyone I'd want to talk to? No. In fact, if you know whoever has the number 818-456-1234, could you please tell them to stop calling? So far, they've called three times today, and that's after I politely told them yesterday to never call here again. In case you're wondering, I screen my calls. If I don't recognize the number on caller ID, and you don't leave a message, I don't answer the phone. Anyway, all day long, from the moment I got up long enough to bundle kiddo up, kiss her goodbye, and send her to school, it's been a zoo here.

Not by my choosing, mind you.

My only peaceful day this week, and it's being disturbed.

Oh well, maybe I'll go bake something and feel better. :)

I hate phones. The only calls I get are from so-called charity organizations or AT&T. Both call me incessantly and I loath them equally.

Hope you get a quiet afternoon, at least. (((hugs)))

I finally after all these years decided to get with the program and put call blocking on my phone. If the person calling has blocked their number the call doesn't go thru and they have to unblock it. Also I have caller ID and an answering machine. Plus I have an unlisted number. Yes all this costs but it sure has cut down on the number of calls I get. Makes it worthwhile.

Sorry your day was so annoying.
Next time turn the ringer off. But if you're like me, you'll forget you did and then wonder why no one ever calls you! LOL

A note from all in the universe:
Our apologies. We were going for your neighbor and missed our mark.

I actually thought about turning off the ringer. However, last week I had an embarrassing mommy moment. Kiddo got hurt at school and I left my cell phone at home charging, so they couldn't reach me. So now I'm super paranoid about making sure I at least know who's calling.

Heather, I appreciate that. While you're at the messing with my neighbors, could you get them to stop smoking pot? In an effective way?

Thanks. I'm tired of having to smell their stink.

If you Google the number, you find many complaints. Someone on one fo the forums found the following info on the creeps and posted it. I'm not sure how to use the info to get them to stop calling me, but I agree they are annoying.

They wanted to help me add 80 - 100 points to my credit score and claimed to know that my score was below 620 (it isn't, I check regularly). So I strung them along by acting interested and finally I was handed off to the "credit counselor" "George". Well George has a very thick Indian accent but claimed to be in America. After probing some more IO got him to give me a website: http://www.homeownercreditrepair.com/. With that I was able to get the following information.
