In reply to my last post, Barbara wonders why I don't change my number or disconnect my land line, rather than take all these, Shawn the Deadbeat calls? Excellent question.
1. I get my home service for free for life.
2. We have had the same number for about 16 years and changing it means contacting a lot of people, many who I will forget.
3. I object to being penalized because of a deadbeat crook.
4. Oh, and it is the same last four digits as our address, for what that's worth.
With Mrs. Sneed's retirement just around the corner, she wondered how many miles she has driven to and from her office these past 18.5 years. The answer is about 51,000, twice around the world at the equator or 18 trip between LA and NY.
Not so much by California commuting standards, but a heck of a lot of miles by Hooterville ones.
By way of comparison, my work commute is two miles, round trip. In a year my total commute is a single round trip from NY to Philadelphia.
