You know the ones I’m talking about…
You hang up, mutter a curse word under your breath, and then get back to doing what you were doing.
Five minutes later, it happens again only this time you stub your toe and nearly fall on your face at least once to answer the call.
Again, no one is there. Still, you say hello like 6 times thinking maybe it is a cell call and the connection is weak.
So, you curse again and return to your business. This time, though, you bring the phone with you just in case this call happens to be “McDreamy” (see previous post) trying to get a hold of you and since he’s calling from the California Mountains his reception isn’t so good.
Of course, the phone rings again before too long…and yes you realize that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting a different result, but you answer it anyway.
Still no one there. Ok, so next time you decide to just let it ring…..
Now you realize that since you have caller ID, you could actually call McDreamy back (I wonder why he has a 1-800 number?) to check and make sure he is ok, but you hesitate. There is a chance, however slight, that it might NOT be McDreamy.
You no longer have to fret over calls like these, or any other calls from numbers you do not recognize. Simply go to everycall.us and look up the number for free to find out who is actually calling.

Or, I’m sure you’d settle for McSteamy….
