Ring... Ring... Ring... Hello!

I found my mom online today. We had a nice chat. She told me that she's been giving telephone sales people my phone number here in Libya. Eventually some idiot will call me.


  1. Every morning just as soon as it's light
    Get out of bed and I'm feeling alright
    Make me some coffee and I sit down alone
    The rest of the day I'm on the telephone

    Hang up, hold on
    You got the time so you come on so strong
    Save your energy and let me be
    Hang up the phone and quit bothering me

    I got a phone in my bedroom and one in the livingroom
    A phone in my car and one in the farm
    A phone on my patio for when I'm out on the porch
    A phone in my pocket for when I'm down at the store

    Now they have my number all over the State's land
    The whole wide world has got more time in their hand
    They'll be calling me up from Detroit and Lebanon
    I'm going to get rid of my telephone
    Go to my farm in Ain Zara and be alone

  2. I get calls all the time from people trying to sell me stuff. I don't know how they got my number and my name.

    NB: I'm starting a new Libyan section on my blogroll - you're the first!

  3. Mahmud! is this a poem or are you serenading me? Thanks!

    Garry - Thanks!

  4. Hahahahah, I am one of these persons to call you trying to have an interview, market research or other questions....
    But I never sell anything. I can't help it, it's my parttime job!

    Garry, we get numbers from everywhere, mostly companies that have you as an client...they sell the numbers in a database. Otherwise, the computer searches till it dials a right number.
