Never called the other number though.
They have called me a dozen times today, I don't answer. You'd think they would get the message, "I DON'T WANT TO TALK TO YOU, TODAY OR EVER!!!!" I think it is so wrong that everyone & there mother can have my # and use up my minutes, Who the hell ever ok'd this anyway!
