Ring Ring

Apparently our new phone number is an old number for a Doctor's office. I've been getting a million lots of calls,mostly in the morning, from patients who sound very sickly, insurance companies, Debt collectors, and even one or two faxes...every hour.

I picked our phone number from the list given to me because it was easy for me to remember. Now I'm utterly annoyed. Do you think if I answer the phone "Good morning; this is NOT a Doctor's office" that it will be a tad too much?

Everytime the phone rings, I know it is not really for me (mostly because nobody knows it yet). What a let down. Speaking of which....there it goes again. Someone really wants to send that fax!

You should start setting up appointments. Tell them you need a deposit first though...and that you only take paypal. :) hee hee

SO annoying! Once we had a cell phone number that was the IRS complaint line. We had angry taxpayers calling and screaming at us before they realized it was the wrong number. Funny, and also ironic because my husband was working as an income tax auditor at the time.

I would ask for a different phone number. How annoying.

Welcome to Colorado!

if no one knows your number yet I'd ask to get a new one too!! That'd be too annoying.

Did the Dr's office just up and move in the dead of night and not tell their patients the new number? Too bad they gave you a recycled number.

Flip! what a pain!! I hope you get it sorted out soon!

PS where did the doctors disappear to that they don't need a phone any more??
