Hahah ... Verizon & Caller ID [Oct. 8th, 2002|04:08 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
I called Verizon last week and had them turn on my Caller ID. Ever since then, I keep getting calls from:

NMBR = 2058140233
NAME = VERIZON NCQAC W


I finally picked up today, my curiosity having finally got to me. (did I forget to pay a bill?) No, it was just a Verizon customer representative that wanted to know if everything was working and if I was happy with my service.

"Well, I didn't answer the last three times you called, so it's working great."

"Good to hear, Mr. Fitzpatrick, you have a wonderful day."

"You too."

Hahaha... Nice. I'm surprised it displayed a number, since many call centers use PBXes that don't send caller ID information.

I got a call from them the other day too! I'd ordered caller ID not too long ago and they were just calling to welcome me to my new apartment, make sure I was happy with my new phone service, if I'd received my phone book and coupon packet, if I needed anything else. Then they offered me some free newspapers (which I declined). It was very nice of them.

I should have asked if they'd send James Earl Jones over to cook me dinner, while they were being so generous. I don't need newspapers or coupons but I could sure use somebody to cook for me.
