I think they got all of Volunteer and Parkview too.

"Snatched". Heh! "snatched".

This made a headline writer's day..

1-800-ASK DAVE

Canada doesn't have the internet, yet?

*calls 1-800-ASK DAVE* Me: "Hi Dave! Talk dirty to me!" Dave: "Booger." I'm not sure that's worth 3.99 per minute.

I've never gotten a sex line by mistake. I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
But the other day I was searching for a quote from "A Christmas Carol", of all things. I couldn't find what I wanted in the first seven links, so I went to the eighth.
Whoa.
The Ghost of Christmas Present has sure changed. She's stark, raving nekkid, now.

A couple years ago, I took a toll road to visit another company we were teaming on a contract with. Since my EzPass transponder was acting up, I called the toll-free number to talk to them about it before making the trip back. Except I apparently misdialed. You can bet I hung up PDQ when I was greeted by a sultry voice cooing come-ons. And explained to the cute receptionist on the way out, just in case they were logging calls.

i like to call numbers like 1-800-BIG FART or 1-800-ASSHATS and when somebody answers say, "hey do you know what your phone number spells?"

When I pointed out that one vendor's support number spelled out "Nut Mend" there was a very quick response to create a more appropriate monicker.

The number now reaches law school support, which I think is probably appropriate.

I called 1-800-tax-paid. Wow did I get screwed!

That's a big snatch!
