    LOL. My obligatory, semi-weekly ABBA post. Check the "burst" guitar and reclaimed snakeskin! Awesome!

    If I don't know exactly who it is, I don't answer. I also don't answer sometimes when I do know who it is. If it's important, they'll leave a message.

    I have no obligation to answer a ringing phone, in fact, I love to hear it ring, because I set "Dark-Eyed Cajun Woman" as my ring tone.

    Hey, how you doin'? Sorry you can't get through. Why don't you leave your name, and your number, and I'll get back to you.

    Not exactly, I injured my knee at work a couple of weeks ago. I had to call the company “Nurse Call” hotline to report it after I spoke with my supervisor. They check in with you until you’re better and the case is closed. When the nurses call, they call from home so they disguise their phone numbers and it comes up on my phone as “possible spam” just like the scam caller’s number did. But I still have to answer it.

    Also, I got my congressman’s office involved in my missing USPS package ($1000 guitar effects processor) and they have been calling and it could have been them, too.

    The one legit 59 'burst I ever sat down and played looked a lot like the one in the video (the 'burst, not the "burst!") Almost entirely faded to a lemony yellow, red only in protected areas.

    Well, it's not for me to tell anybody how to live his life, but I'm just saying NOBODY EVER calls me, and it's great!

    I only my answer my cell phone when I recognize the number as my wife or one of my friends. I purposely never set a voice mail password, so the system doesn't allow callers to leave messages.

    This earworm from the one-hit band Cymarron came to mind when I saw the thread title.

    He has another one that I can't find right now, but it's from a carpet cleaning service. He says something like, I can't believe you called right now.....can you get blood out of carpet? They respond yes. He says it's a LOT of blood......they say they'll have to look at it to be sure. He says can you come over RIGHT NOW? They say well, they'd have to schedule an appointment. He says it's very urgent, it's in the carpet and up the walls, and he needs it cleaned up NOW!!!!......you get the idea, it, too, is hilarious.
