Got a call on my cell while I was at work today asking for the diabetic in the family, meaning Arlene. So I reacted the way I usually do now, I nicely tell them that she isn't here, but that I can give them the phone number where she is. Then I gave them the phone number to the cemetery, and tell them not to take "There is nobody there by that name" for an answer, because I then tell them "I was there yesterday, she is there, but she didn't say a word". 

I'm going to Hell aren't I?

I've done similar things, Don, so be sure to look for me in your particular Circle of Hell. :-)

I also salute your inventiveness!

Many years ago after my father died I kept getting phone calls insisting that I give them his current address. I informed them that he had died. Finally I gave them the cemetery address. The phone calls stopped.

Telemarketers....They deserve it.  I know they’re trying to earn a living but we have a right to peace. I hope they called!

No you aren't. I love it.
