I am SO upset right now it's not even funny.  So, 2 months ago I quit my Cricket cell phone service and signed on with AT&T since they have international plans (I am moving abroad you know!).  Everything has been fine, I have LOVED my iPhone, but then today around noon I started getting calls from random #'s that I've never seen before.  I was working so I didn't pay too much attention to it, but then after work I realized that there were like 12 different #'s that had tried to call me that afternoon.  I also noticed that I hadn't gotten a text message since the morning.  Then, I called my mom and she was like 'why did you just send me a text that said holla back'??  I was like I didn't, and I checked and I haven't sent her a text in over a week.  RANDOM.  So I start thinking about it and I think that my # must 'somehow' be crossed with someone else's.  So, I call AT&T, and they were very nice and helpful, but they had NO clue how this might have happened.  They did however offer to change my #, but I wasn't too keen on that.  

So, then I'm almost home and I get a call from another random #, so I answer it and it's a guy who tells me that his brother went into Cricket to get a new cell phone today and that my # was the # they gave him.  Confused yet??  So, all of our calls and texts have been getting switched.  UGH.  So, I call Cricket, and after about 10 transfers I finally get through to a girl who knows what to do but tells me that the department in charge of this kind of stuff is closed until the morning.  I POLITELY tell her that that is unacceptable and that the problem needs to be resolved IMMEDIATELY.  After being on hold for about 40 minutes and talking to 2 different supervisors, I FINALLY convince them to cut off service to the new guys #.  

So, where am I going with this you might ask.  I just wanted to let all of you know that if you texted or called me today and thought that I was ignoring you by not responding I was doing no such thing.  I love you all very much and I would never do that to you.  I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.  

(At least it makes for good blogging material, right.)  I will now go take a bunch of Advil.

We are SO not friends any more. Just kidding. I thought you were just ignoring me. Makes sense now.

Phone problems are almost just as bad as car problems!

Ugh...I know exactly what you mean. For a while random people would call me asking for(as a matter of fact) "Danielle". It was SO annoying. Obviously I am NOT "Danielle". I finally had to ask someone who called me to tell "Danielle" when he finally got a hold of her to stop giving out my number. Good grief. I'm hoping it wasn't you giving out my numbers to creepers...;) Haha. I know you wouldn't do that.

I promise you that I wasn't giving out your # to random creepers. But, it would be kinda funny if I had.
