All I Want for Christmas Is For People to Stop Calling My Cell Phone

CREDIT:

In some kind of reverse Christmas Even miracle, it appears that the people at one of America’s telecom companies (leading suspect is Verizon) has somehow managed to make it be the case that when people punch in the phone number for some woman named Lisa, it’s my phone that rings. This would mostly be amusing, except that tons of people seem to call Lisa. What’s more, the problem is so severe that even Verizon Customer Service winds up calling me when they’re trying to reach Lisa to talk to her about why all her phone calls are getting directed to me.

Very annoying. And also pretty weird. This, by contrast, is also weird but in an awesome and hilarious way. Enjoy.
