What the hell???

Ok... If you call my house, and I'm not home, the machine says "Hi, this is Steve. I'm not here so leave a message. BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP".

So why in the fuck are 80% of my messages people going "Hello??? Heeeelllloooooo?" or "Hi, may I speak to Paul Diaz please?" Apparently Paul Diaz had this number before me and even though I've had it for three years now, people are still trying to find him here.

But dude, what the fuck? I mean, I know in some cases, the obnoxious auto-dialler thingy that telemarketers use hasn't connected them by the time the machine has picked up, but that's not always it. They're talking right after the beep, so they must be hearing it. Are people not familiar with this crazy new invention called the answering machine? I think I might just give up on having a home phone. Stupid thing.

i'm giving my home phone the heave-ho and updating my cellphone. maybe i'll even get a nifty cameraphone, i've been looking at them with wanton lust lately.
even though i just said a month ago that i was giving up the cellphone for good, i know, i know...

but i screen all my calls on the homeline, and they're all just wrong numbers anyway. feh.
