— this is really happening

and we politely tell them NO

REMINDER: all cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies tomorrow, January 31, 2008. You will start to receive sale calls and those precious minutes will flutter away like parmesan in a breeze. YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THESE CALLS.

To prevent this, register your number with the NATIONAL DO NOT CALL Registry by calling 888-382-1222 from your cell phone. You can also register at www.donotcall.gov. I called; it took only a minute. I learned that this initiative is a joint effort of the California Attorney General and the Federal Trade Commission. Rock n roll.

(This momversation has been brought to you by my Mom who just sent me the above reminder, sans parmesan bit. Many thanks to B-MFO for the superb inspiration of new Mom "conversation" lingo.)
