Reminds me of a practical joke that was popular when I was a teen. You call people and ask "Is John there?" (Or whatever name). Of course he isn't. and ten minutes later you call again: "Can I speak to John, please?" And so on, every half hour, until late at night. Works even better if you can get various people to make the same call. Then finally, at three in the morning, you call and say "Hi, this is John speaking. Were there any messages for me?"

Not that I ever inflicted this on anyone. It's not that I wasn't naughty enough; it just seemed like too much hard work. :-)

Dense people can be no little irksome thing.

I’ve got this dolt who’s been sending five or more “Please Call Me” notifications daily for the past three weeks, despite several replies of mine alerting them to the fact that they’ve got the wrong damn number.  Also, I can’t block the number ’cos my phone doesn’t support that feature, and the alternative of approaching the service provider for a solution (blocking the number or upgraded phone) are equally daunting in their inevitable irksomeness.

What to do, what to do?  Ignoring the dolt doesn’t seem to get the message across either.

That's one way to recon I guess.

Also remember to check for a "Made in China"  sign anywhere on the tools. If you find one, you can spare yourself the trouble of trying to rescue the things. They'll disintegrate to dust whatever you do.

Yes, China is more environmentally friendly than Trump.

Surely this was staged... :-)
