    Rica

    I keep getting calls from people who want to make me offers, so I ask them how they get the number they are calling, as it is a private number and it is not displayed anywhere and they are calling from Vodacom and I am not with Vodacom, I am told they get the numbers from Rica data base...mmm interesting so much for your personal details being private and confidential.

    Me: Who is Asking?

    Caller: Sir do you live at Address: XXXXXXX ?

    Me: Sorry... Who is this?

    Caller: Sir do you own a Flat screen TV and or Notebook computer?

    Me: “presses little red button”

    Not one of our Telecommunication service providers are willing to block these.

    I phone my provider and they are no help at all.

    Just give him your neighbour's address the one with the barking dog.

    Tell the caller you need to get a pen and put them on hold till they hang up, they soon get the message.

    I get another call today, from a company representing Eskom with all my details, to ask me if I will be home at 4.30 pm today so that they can come do an energy audit on my house. I told them I don't need an energy audit because if my bill goes any lower the electricity department is going to get suspicious and start poking their noise in my business, so no thanks, I need the grass to grow back properly and tar to age, I suppose I could say it was from the water damage.
