Ricky Don’t Lose That Number

Now, with cell phones, it’s a lot harder to not give someone your number. Now, they want you to call them on the spot because God forbid they have a pen and write down their number. So a person who’s barely email worthy, has your number. The only thing you can do at that point is to put their name in your phone so you at least know not to answer when they call. But will you remember not to answer 6 months from now? What if you don’t know their last name? Or remember them at all.

YOU: Who’s “Lord Too Nice”?!

I say you assign them a last name…but don’t get caught…

LORDTOONICE: My last name isn’t “Don’t Answer!”
YOU: That’s code for hell ya I’m going to answer…Not buying it?

I might have to get another cell phone just for not answering. I’m not trying to suggest that I’m that sought after just that people are intrusive. If I have given you my number, please don’t think this is about you. This blog entry isn’t autobiographical…necessarily.

    My approach is to use the real name but assign it an appropriately descriptive ring tone.

    I tried to get "Rescue Me" (since that was the theme of the calls I was dealing with) but settled for something else.

    You should give them a series of equations to solve in order to get your number. That way, they would have to qualify. I've heard it works quite well.
