That phone number is my reject list, so the phone doesn't ring, but it doesn't stop them leaving me stupid messages. I once got a sales pitch message that didn't fit before the answering machine cut off, so they called back to continue the pitch. I think it took four times for them to give me the whole pitch. grrrr

I don't answer out-of-area calls or calls from area codes I don't know. What really annoys me is when they wake me up from a nap.

Me either, Andy. If I don't recognize the area code, it gets dismissed.

Finally have the phone lines fixed. Not exactly in perfect usage. But better then it has been. Pages are loading here. Able to stay and visit a while. Isn't that always nice?

AT&T had better not charge me for the 5 days we went without usable phone service. The static was so bad I couldn't call out or receive phone calls. Net was unusable after 10 min.They never told me what happened to the main box. It's been a problem for years. Someone ran it over once. Rain drowned it the last time. The Tech did mention if it was an underground line it would never be fixed. AT&T will never put out the trouble or expense to dig up a sidewalk. We'll see about that. If they have the money to shell out for expensive commercials for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Golf. They got the moonies to throw me a rope!

Now I have to get with the whole world. Break down and get a cell phone of my own that I've adamantly refused to own. I hate those gadgets.

No such thing and I am glad you are back online and in communication with the rest of the world.

Shrek forgot about his "Donut Hole" with Medicare Prescriptions...he ordered his most expensive med, which will last him almost a year, and it came to $732 for one med!!!! It's an inhaler he uses when he thinks about, maybe twice a week, this last one has lasted him almost a year, now he has 6 of them coming. I told him next time he waits for January when he is not in the darned "Hole" to order it. Arrrgh!!!

He should be able to change the inhaler quantity to 2 or 3 and spread out the expense to avoid the dh.

Yes, we will remember that for the next time. The directions read 2 puffs twice a day, not as needed, so to them 6 = a 3 month supply. And of course, the prescription house was on the ball with this one and shipped almost as soon as he got done ordering. They usually take a day or two so we could cancel the order if we wanted or at least cut it back.

I think he should just remove it from his medications with them and get it singly from a local pharmacy, may cost a bit more, but this wouldn't happen. But, what do I know...
