I work at a Mom & Pop TV & Appliance store (Kinda like a Best Buy but with a conscience). Last evening a lady called the house several times (I wasn't home) then she started calling everyone with my last name until she got my parents house. This is 8PM. She had relatives over and couldn't remember how to run her DVD player I installed 7 years ago. :wallbanging: I was polite & helped her thru how she should do it & un-did what her husband had done by randomly pushing buttons, but I am tempted to call them next week at 8PM with an insurance question (he owns an independent insurance agency):sensored:

LOL, we get stuff like that too. At least you did the right thing and helped her out but I think you should call with your insurance questions LOL

Years ago when I repaired motorcycles & ATV's on the side of farming, the phone rang at 1am, and of course my 1st thought was something bad had happened to someone. Then I find it's some kooky lady wanting to know if I had any "used" spark plugs for her son's moped! Yep, she actually wanted a used plug to save money!!!!!! It was all I could do to not give her a cussing! Talk about idiots!

My uncle is an auctioneer and he had someone call him at 1AM to ask what color the push mower was that he was to sell at auction the next day. I know my uncle well enough that I'm gonna say that person got the royal cussin' of his life!!!! He did say the caller was inhebriated.

I can guarantee they would have gotten an ear full of four letter words if they called me at 1am in the morning to ask something stupid like that.
