I just want to say a sleeping policeman is the funniest thing ever!
This number is pissing the crap out of me. So this stupid chick keeps calling me (at least 4 times now) about rent I supposedly owe to one of their condominiums. First of all, you have to realize, I don’t even live close to the caller (We are talking several hours drive away). They are called Hallmark Rentals and they keep calling my cell saying I owe them like 1700+ dollars and they are taking me to court. So I’m like, dude whoever owned this number before me, owe you rent so stop calling me or I will have to block your number. Then she asked me to give her the information of the owner prior to you or else you will b responsible for paying the charges. As if I would have that on me! Why don’t’ they just call Verizon wireless?! They should have gotten the information correctly, and I did not live there, or use the service, so why the hell would I be responsible for those charges? I started to get nasty with her and threatened to sue her for unlawful harassment if she doesn’t stop calling. First of all, why the hell would I have that person’s information? And this person who owned the number before me seems to have owed a lot of people money. Now if I have this number, does that reflect in any way the other person’s bad credit? I don’t want to end up with a bad rep because the person before me was a complete ass. And I most certainly don’t want to be responsible for the charges of the person before me. Isn’t there anything I can do besides calling all of those companies back (with my down minutes) and tell them they have the wrong number and they should call elsewhere? This is getting really ridiculous.
First of all, I jog and I run. 5-7 days a week. I jog about 4-6 miles a day. It's summer so i tend to run when the sun isn't shining on my face as I don't do too well in the sun. So I might run at 4am or 8pm. Where is the rant might you ask?
THE GOD DAMN HONKING
I don't know where people get the idea that it is a good idea to spam their car honks when they pass by a runner. Is it amusing because I don't really see the fun in it all. On an average run I get about 10 people honking. Most of those people I don't know. Then I have the morons who stop and ask me if I want a ride home. Listen people, if you are jogging, you are trying to exercise. If I want a ride, I will stick out my hitch hiker finger. Then I have people who swirve by me and try to start a conversation while i try to run. Listen people, I don't need the company. if you need company, there are amny places on the internet for those. My nano ipod and i get along fine without you. Not to mention all of the items above make me jump a mile. I feel my life has shortened from the constant fright. So the next time you see a runner, you mine your own damn business and refrain yourself from honking. It is not a good way to acknowledge people and i dont' like stupid surprises!
