Mr. Joseph, line one please...

Ok, so I purchased my cellphone back in August 2001. Since then, I have received phone calls for a Julius Joseph. Mr Joseph, apparently, cleans carpets.

The call frequency has dropped off from several per week to one every few months. When I ask these people what number they're calling, they give me my number. Here's the kicker: the woman who called me five minutes ago said Julius gave her my number two months ago.

I see it as one of two things: either this is Joseph's blow-off number--the one he gives to creditors, ugly girls at the bar, etc., or I'm the victim of the world's most patient practical joker: "Hi, this is Julius Joseph calling. Have their been any calls for me?"
