I’m changing back to my green theme cause black looks too gloomy.
Operator : Vodafone customer service. I’m Sarah (not real name). how can I help you?
Me : Hi.. I’m wondering if I could change my phone number
(after taking my details..)
Operator : May I ask why would you like to change it?
(Silence. Fumbling for an answer)
Operator : Is someone bothering you?
Me : Yea.
Operator : Well.. Miss Minci. You would have to first do a police report about this person who’s bothering you. Send it to us and we will happily change your number for free. Is that ok?
Me : Yes, thank you
Operator : You’re very welcome. Good luck (kindly)
This conversation took place in 2005. It’s one of the stories I dug up from my diary. See? Writing format for diary is very much like writing for a blog. Haha.
I ended up not changing my number for I felt it was too much of a hassle. I mean I could easily ignore this particular freak. So why not do just that. I kept his number so that if I see it lit up on my phone screen as a caller, I’d just don’t answer it. Until he gets bored.
2 years later, he’s still not bored and I’m still not answering.
* I read this in a magazine some years ago that if a freak wants your phone number and you have difficulty in saying NO, then just give him this number (+447774598750). Works only in the UK though and its supposed to be diverted to a radio station or something. I’m not sure if this service still exists.
