Wireless Faxes my Ass!

Why do companies keep sending facsimiles to me? I don't even have a facsimile machine. All I get is beeping. The worst part is that they must have auto-send because for two days, every five minutes my wireless rang. If I didn't answer it, which was bad enough, it left a message.

What can I do about it? Well, let me tell you what I did.

First thing I did was call the digital finger print that showed up on my incoming caller ID, but that did no good. You can't talk to a machine, much less cuss it out. It doesn't even phase it.

But I am a resourceful person. So I came up with a plan. You can send a facsimile to a facsimile machine from your computer! So I sent a cute little note back to them. Here's what it said:

Please STOP sending me facsimiles!

If your company continues to send these my wireless, I will send all nine hundred pages of the local white pages back to your machine.
Thank you for your cooperation.

Alas, it didn't work. So I am now in the process of fulfilling this mission. But surprisingly this has worked. Their facsimile machine is so busy accepting my white pages that it doesn't have time to send out any of their own.

If anyone has a another creative solution to this problem let us know.

The plural of fax is not facsimilies... it's feces. That's all I seemed to get when I had a machine that stayed plugged in all the time. I still get the occasional errant ad, but not as much as before. With the advent of e-mail it's a dying technology. I like your solution but they just have a computer at the other end, not something that will spew paper. Good luck next time.
