    Lesson of the day...

    Not all multiple hangups are punks calling and hanging up. Be sure who it is before going into the "You done playing $#@&ing games?!" and having it turn out being a buddy from overseas with a bad connection.

    My bad Tacman :) lol

    Reminds me of when I laid into a caller before realizing it was my doctor.

    Kinda like the time I woke up to someone beating the hell out of my front door. Grabed to old model 10 Smith and answered the door. To my surprise, there stood the local LEO to tell
    me that a friend of mine needed me to pull guard duty because he was 600 miles away on a weekend pass and just remembered he had duty. I just kinda slid it down the back of a chair
    and thanked the fine man for the massage. All I could think of was, Man, that could have turned out real bad. Only back frm Nam for 2 months, didn't need any truble.

    LOL. I've also learned this the hard way. Many years ago, I was driving along with all the windows down and got a call from a number I didn't know, after answering the person asked to speak to me by name, and stammered a little,and I could barely hear them, so I finally just yelled "WHAT THE (expletive)DO YOU WANT !?!?!?" ,.....turns out it was my soon-to-be boss, calling to tell me they wanted to hire me

    Nice. I've not had this problem yet, but I do not doubt it will happen.

    Sort of like making sure it is the bad guy before you shoot.
