why I need to pay more attention to caller ID

This just happened.

Ring, ring. (the phone)

(Caller ID reads: "Wisconsin call")

Me: Hello?

Dude on the other end: Hello, is Susan there?

Me: Yes.

Dude:
Hello, this is so-and-so calling from True (mumble).

Me: True what?

Dude:
True (mumble). With spring just a couple weeks away, it's time to start thinking about lawn care. We have treated your property before, and -

Me:
Oh, TruGREEN! You're the people who put poisons on people's lawns!

Dude: Uh, no...

Me: We are SO NOT INTERESTED!!

click.

Me to Stuart:
Seriously, that was as polite as I could possibly be.

Stuart:
(chuckles)

This was really funny to read...I could see and hear it exactly!
Are these the same bozos who goofed and put chemicals on your lawn last year? If so, they had a LOT of nerve calling you, stating "We have treated your property before." Yeah... but only by mistake, you so-and-so! Ugh! There are people in the neighborhood where we're renting who use that crap. That's especially scary when you consider all the water here in San Antone comes from an aquifer...

No, not the same guys...I should have clarified that!

Those idiots never seem to realize that they are intruding. I had a falling out with them years and years ago, and they finally must have put our name on the "do not call" list, because we don't hear from them anymore. I guess we convinced them that we would rather have dandelions than kids with leukemia.
