Can you hear me now?

Have you ever been skimming through your cell phone book, looking for a friend’s number and wonder who the hell some of these people are?

I seem to collect phone numbers like matchbooks. Almost the equivalent of the proverbial little black book, only I’m too lazy to type anything other than the name and number. So I’m left with these mysterious names and telephone numbers with absolutely no recollection as to how they got there.

And it’s not like I can call the person and say, “Um, hi. I was just browsing through my cell phone and came across your name and number. I seemed to have saved you in my cell phone at one time. Could you tell me why?” Some answers to that question might be embarrassing. Shudders

I mean, I obviously thought the person was Cell Number Saving Worthy. At the time. I seem to have developed a habit of nicknaming some of them, too. Perhaps to remind myself of who they are or where we met or why I thought they were important enough to hit save.

Like Migraine Joe. Who the fuck types Migraine Joe into their cell phone? Apparently, I do. I must have thought it was funny ‘cause I sure as hell don’t remember who Joe was, much less whether the migraine was his or mine.

Or Fuckin’ Dave. Now is that because I was, literally, fucking Dave or is that an adjective use of the almighty F-word? Was it because I thought it would be hilarious to see the words “Fuckin’ Dave” pop up when he called? Hmmmm…

Then there’s Danville Tom. Well, at least I know what city he lives in. It’s not like I needed to distinguish him from anyone else named “Tom” in my cell phone. I don’t know any other Tom. Evidently, I don’t know Danville Tom, either.

Another is just the letter M in the 415 area code. Just a lonely ol’ letter M. Poor M. Didn’t even rate a full name.

Amy in the 949 area code. That’s in Orange County down in Southern California. I haven’t been to SoCal in almost 10 years. I’ve only had this cell phone for 2 years. Who the hell is Amy? Let Kevin Smith go chasing her because I’ve just hit delete.

Out of the past 42 days here in SF Bay Area, something like 35 have been rainy. This is what I do on rainy days while sitting in traffic, waiting for the dumbass’s who don’t know how to slow down in the rain and got in an accident, to clear. Go through my cell phone and delete these names and numbers of people I no longer remember.

Hey, if any of you know Wheezer Craig…tell him I’m sorry, but I just couldn’t hear him anymore.

this was amusing to read i totally feel your pain. though mine is MSN messenger and YIM... i do'nt own a cell phone. though thanks for the heads up... i'll probably be doing the same as you 3 months after getting one.

i'm planning on sending out one big email to everybody on my list, and those that respond back and remember ME (and remind me if needed) will be allowed to stay. just haven't done it yet.

Yup That's what I would do. I've had whole converstaions with peeps that knew my whole life story and 30 minutes later I've been known to say, "And who are you again?" LOL! [//bg]
