Dear Non-English Speaker who Started Calling at 5 this Morning,

I AM NOT ESSIE!!!
STOP SPEAKING WHEN I'M SPEAKING!!!
YOU HAVE THE WRONG NUMBER!!!
It's like you're waiting for me to speak before you start speaking. What gives??
You would think by the third try you would FIGURE IT OUT.
STOP. CALLING.
Sincerely,
NOT ESSIE.

**Update**
I just dialed the number back: it's a prison. Of COURSE it's a prison.

I didn't think prisoners woke up that early.

But then again, I've never been in prison, so how would I know?

I've never been to prison either, but I have to imagine that somebody who got arrested in the early morning hours would be trying to call ol' Essie at that time. So, maybe not a prison, but a jail?

Dodgevileprison? That happened t ojess when she lived in Madison. She could not shake the guy and the prison office said "Have you told him not call?" Duh. He was in prison for not obeying the rules. He did not care that Jess did not want him to call. It went on for quite a while. There was even a letter I think. Creepy creepo creepster.

We, too, had a foreign-speaking person who'd regularly call early in the morning. Our solution? Ever since, we've turned our phone off at night and not turned it on until we're awake. Our answer machine is on but silent, so we can receive messages, but we've never again been bothered by the foreign-language alarm clock.
