I suggested she memorize the number for "dial a prayer."
There are actually phone numbers out there that you can give away that have a recorded message about getting rejected. It's pretty funny!

LOL!!! When I was a young college student, I used to give persistent guys the phone number for the local police station. That seemed to work pretty well, too.

Personally - I would skip it unless you want to see what you can learn. You could go for the purpose of reporting back your findings?... or not.

I think I read an article once about a town in which the local police number was almost always busy. Must have been where you went to college.

Re: Poll: Should I Go???

By the way, there are a number of free phone services that give you a local number in your area with voicemail. You get the messages delivered via email or go to their web site to pick them up. AIM's service has lots of local numbers.

GREAT for when you have to give out a number but dont really want to, for stuff like car rentals, sweepstakes entries, or persistent pickup artists...

Re: Poll: Should I Go???

If you had any doubts...read the thread on the cheap things people on this board have done. Hungry? LBYM? Eat their food....just bring your tech entertainmnent (ipod, or cell phone gizmos) so you can tune out their drivel
