The Ramblings of a Damaged Mind
Remember the other day I mentioned Irene, a waitress at Ruby Tuesday's? Well some jackass, who sounded fairly stupid - or maybe drunk, just called my cell phone and 'warned' me to stay away from her. Of course, he didn't disable caller ID (he's at 978-407-1266, feel free to call him all you want, whenever you want - just turn off Caller ID first) so I called him back and poked fun at him, thanked him for his number, and told him I'd let her know about the call. He didn't seem happy about that, and warned me I didn't want to do that. Thing is, when people do that, it just makes me want to do it. I suspect this is the recent-ex she spoke of. Next time I run into her I'll ask her about it.

Edit: I called AT&T Wireless (my provider) and determined that it is a cell phone in the Southwestern Bell number block - i.e. Cingular. I wonder if they have a standard text message email address... Well, they do - if his phone supports it he's 9784071266@mobile.mycingular.com If only there were a way to get spammers to pick that up. :-)

Dude, has this guy actually seen you? He'd have to be pretty damn drunk, stupid, or impressive to think he's going to beat you up in a bar brawl or something. :) I'm betting on some combination of the first two.

Since I don't know who it was who called (I tried a reverse lookup, but no results - it is probably a cell phone) I can't say for sure. If it is her ex then I don't think so, or maybe one of the guys she works with has his own designs.

I did consider the possibility that she's uncomfortable about me coming around and asking for her when I come in, but it doesn't fit. The last time I was in that she was on was Friday night. She deliberately came over and sat down across the booth from me and chatted a few times while I was there. That hardly seems like the actions of someone who is trying to avoid me.

How this guy got my number is something to wonder about. I have called a couple of times when trying to decide where to go - if she's on I'll go there, etc. So someone else at Ruby's could've taken my number of their CID. Maybe her ex knows someone who works there, or it is someone who works there. She also has my number, since I gave it to her. So she could give it to someone to have call me - but then we're back to the avoiding me thing, which doesn't fit observation. And the number was on the back of my business card, so the guy calling probably wouldn't have started with "Who am I speaking to?" - which he did.

ah, yes, the telephonic strategy almost guaranteed to fail with me. "Hello?" "Hi, who's this?" "You don't know who you called? Bye."

Ah yes, Captain Asshole.

I wonder if that number is in the user database at the office. I'll try looking it up tomorrow. With any luck, I'll know his whole work history. ;)

Oh, that'd be sweet. :-)

No such luck. Found three resumes with that phone number, but different area codes though. :(

Send him a cute thing from some online junk thing, using their "Tell a friend!" thingamawhatzit.

If only there were a way to get spammers to pick that up. :-)

The various *.test newsgroups work wonders for that.

Wow... So pure, so evil.

I hit alt.test, misc.test, and net.test for now.
rbarclay From: rbarclay Date: October 24th, 2003 04:27 pm (UTC) (Direct Link)
Don't forget the ccTLDs *.test's. at.test, for example, has proven to be an absolute *magnet* for spam.

Get in good with a sufficiently talented cadre of 2600 meeting attendees, and you should never have to worry about this guy's phone again, Zoner. ;)

Or report him to the cops for harrassment. That might make him think twice.
