Interrupting My Cooking...

  1. Things like this do make me glad that some cellular services do not even recognize our area code as valid!
    Funny that they are nice enough to give you an option to discontinue further calls, however, it does not even register. Have a great day!

  7. I have come to realize being removed from these lists takes at least 5 attempts. Very frustrating!

  9. It's due to crap like this that we cancelled (or rather, simply stopped using since we don't want to bounce around our credit rating) our credit card.
