I have been trying to get in touch with the ex tenant about getting the rest of her stuff and to get rid of the trash (the trash smell is off the charts on that room) but no answer for days and she has no voice mail. She would not answer the business phone, she would not answer my cell SO Tony handed me his phone and said "try mine, she does not know my number." Bam! She answered on he third ring! Now I have the promise that it`ll be gone Thursday. We will see! Don`t you just live it when people cannot resist answering a strange but local number?

I always answer strange numbers and I always will. I have no idea if my child will be using a strangers phone. It happened to me once and bless my hear my man who never does answered. I know she said she would be there but what if she is not there Thursday. what are your plans then? You should be praised for your efforts. I would box that Sh up and c.o d it to her house.What a nice blessing it would be to see it was signed for.

I'm the exact opposite. I will only answer a phone call if I recognize the number; if not, I let it go straight to voicemail. It used to be that I would answer any local call I got, but I've noticed over the past year that telemarketers and sales people are now starting to use local numbers when they call, so I've decided not to answer any calls unless I know the number. And it somebody leaves me a voicemail, I will listen to it right away and respond if necessary. If they don't leave a voicemail, well then I guess it wasn't important enough to need to talk to them anyway!

Haha. That was very clever. I just hope she comes good for you. You have to wonder why the heck she doesn't just finish up and get out of your life - and get some peace back for herself.

@andriaperry If someone ask about you, do not attempt to give your details.. there are using names as bait. you can determine if it's fake or not.

She was probably curious as who would be calling so answered. I hope it works out for you. Where I lived before I had to rent a room in my apartment and it was very difficult to have a stranger around and you find out how honest people are not. I had lots of problems with people.

No actually I do not just love it when I ended up answering a strange call 3 months ago and being met with serious adversity that continued up until recently---- so now all the people who were robo-calling, GOTCHYA !

I will not answer strange numbers, even if local. It could be voip or something. Someone phishing. Her promise is only as good as the air she breathes, since she did not write it on paper.

Actually, that is a new tactic. Telemarketers and scammers know that people don't answer their phone anymore so they spoof numbers that look like your area code and prefix. I don't answer any call unless I recognize the number. So I answer for my kids, other family members, and my best friend and let the rest go to message.
