I have another telemarketing solution that you might find amusing - since
it costs extra for an unlisted number or to have caller id -and i am a poor
college student - i have listed my phone in the name of my cat - stanly
fish- so telemarketers who call ask for him and i generally tell them that
he's not in or that he's outside and could they please take his name off
their list. It makes calls from telemarketers just a little more fun :)
