#2945: The week has evaporated

I haven't even been doing anything. WTF.

In about 15 minutes I have stuff to do, yet I'm sitting here and blogging. I'm a nerd.

Some outfit that shows up as "AICR" in Caller ID is spamming my phone number and not bothering to leave a message. Alternately it comes up as "Am Inst Cancer" or "American Inst". It has a 202 area code but the number shows as "no information available" when I try checking it on a reverse lookup site. These chuckleheads call me 3-4-5 times a day.

And they don't bother leaving a message when they call. I Googled it, and "AICR" matches the "American Institute of Cancer Research", which fits all the other permutations. So, I sent them an e-mail cordially asking them to stop calling me; and before signing off I added, "If you're not calling me, please be advised that someone is pretending to be you."

I really don't care which it is. Jesus Christ, if there's something so freaking important to you that you're going to call me 3-4-5 times a day about it, at least leave a fucking message when you call. When I get a phone call from a number I don't know and the caller doesn't leave a message, I assume it's not important.

Have to go over to my lawyer friend's house now and fix an e-mail problem for him. It'll probably take me five minutes to do. *sigh* Well, at least it's an excuse to ride the bike!
