Today I changed someone’s contact name in my cell phone to “Do Not Pick Up!” since, according to the Verizon Wireless website, no wireless provider allows you to block individual numbers. WTF?
I keep all phone numbers I’ve ever had so that I don’t make the mistake of answering a call that comes in without a name, having mistaken a deleted contact for a first time caller.
In order to concretize the mind game, I am also changing other numbers I’m avoiding to Do Not Pick Up as well. That way, I really won’t pick up, since I won’t be sure which person I don’t want to ever talk to again is calling.
I’ll distinguish the contacts like this (since I can’t have identical contacts)
Do Not Pick Up
Do Not Pick Up!
Do Not Pick Up!!
Do Not Pick Up!!!
It’s a master plan.
