Tuff titty said the kitty.  But it hasn't ever deterred them yet so they must 
be used to it.  Recently they've been hitting my cell phone too, so I just 
registered its number on the National Do Not Call list while I was 
re-registering the home number.  As the cell phone seems to do a better job 
on the caller ID, I expect to be able to cost Volkswagon of America about 
$50k one of these days, they are calling to advise me my warranty is about to 
run out.  Since its a 2002 Jetta, the warranty was about out when I bought it 
nearly 2 years ago & if you have ever dealt with VOA on a warranty matter, 
you know very well they wouldn't violate the warranty terms right down the 
the last dotted i in the whole document.  So yeah, these jerks all get 'the 
best part of you ran down your mothers leg' treatment from me.

Or worse, I can be a cantankerous old coot when the occasion is called for.  I 
got rid of the local call center bugging me long before the NDNC list, after 
I caught them on a caller-id modem I was logging, I took the printout 
and 'Betsy' and made a personal call to their front office.  I instructed 
them to paint the number I gave them on the wall as one you will never call 
again.  Calls went way down after that.  I'll let your imagination fill in 
just what Betsy was.

Cheers, Gene
