I hate how, you ask for information on one fuqing bit of information for one college course, and suddenly for the next month you're getting calls about similar courses from all over the states. Most annoying thing

Don't I know it! I filled out an inquiry into an HVAC class online. Since then I have been receiving calls on my cell phone from these recruitment services looking to place me with a school. The part that really pisses me off is that the bastards cannot speak English well enough for me to understand more than half of what they say.

Last one that called I said "You might want to look into some classes on English and take them yourself!"

Its been two days since the last call.

Those are the kinds of places I give my land phone number to. My Cell phone number has limited distribution.

I don't even have a land phone so I have to depend on a cellphone. Considering getting a second one with minimum features for stuff like that now

It's probably cheaper to get a land phone. I call it my "business" phone because I don't conduct any business over my cell phone.

As I find myself becoming more independent of my wife I am using my cell phone more and more as both a business and personal phone. I have lots of friends who no longer have a land line. I may end up going that way myself.

Yeah but the problem with land lines is you get a bunch of random businesses calling you, that's why I disabled mine

Damn. I think my computer has a virus. Damn Anna-Purna! It probably happened when I was looking up a pic to post in the owl thread.
