Dear Barbara Whats-yer-name,

For the past six months we have been taking your collections calls. I don't think the debt collectors believe me that I don't know who you are or where I can find you. They keep calling; early in the morning and late at night. I keep telling them you must have changed your number to get away from them. Except for the robotic recorded messages that I can not get away from. I spent 15 minutes on hold waiting for a "real" person only to find that I needed a reference number to take my phone number off their list. Barbara, these are your bills not mine. I don't have any reference numbers.

Today I spent 20 minutes on the phone with a lawyers office trying to explain that I am in no way related to you. The person on the other end thought I was covering for you - trying to get them to stop calling you.

My next call was to Qwest. The kind operator changed my phone number (for free!). Thankfully, I will not be taking any more messages for you. So here it is one last time - Your credit card company, hospital, lawyer, and who knows who else wants their money; oh and the job service you're listed on has positions available for you...


*I'll be sending an email out with my new number - for those of you who aren't Barbara or her debt collectors!

Oh my goodness! How annoying! I didn't realize this was STILL going on since last we discussed it forever ago. I am glad that a new number will solve the problem, even if it is a hassle.

How frustrating! I gotta say though, if this is going to happen to someone, it HAS to be you, right?!

Your posts lately have been cracking me up! I miss you!
