FUCK YOU, STOP CALLING ME - May 2020

Deep into the pandemic and quarantine.  While it does seem to slow down these calls, it does not stop them.

7 May 2020
  310-322-8705  El Segundo, CA - A week into the month, and this is the first call.  Obviously, this is another spoofed number.  I am amazed it took so long for the telemarketers to call.  The last call was over two weeks ago. Perhaps the they are cutting down on jobs.  Do robots get laid off?   Fuck you!

9 May 2020
 949-550-7135  Irvine, CA - Early Saturday morning, looks like "Micheal"got another text

949-550-7135
No need to reply STOP, I will just BLOCK...fuck you!

17 May 2020
  657-274-2192  Morristown, NJ -  Same message, different number.


657-274-2192
Also blocked.  Fuck you!

  419-495-5007  Ohio - Call Protect, where have you been all this time?

419-495-5007
Obvioulsy, I do not check my phone that often.  But, good thing Call Protect intercepted this Fraud Risk from Ohio.  Even when I did a search for this to find where the call came from, the search results say "telemarketer".  Yeah, I know.  But, from where?  Call Protect says it is from Ohio, I guess that is good enough...no that it matters. I am just trying to keep a consistent format, here.

Where was I?  Oh yeah.  Fuck you!

 218-396-2705  Becker, MN - This is a spoofed number.  If you did a search for this number and ended up here...first of all, welcome.  Second, your number has been used to make telemarketing calls from the evil empire known as Door Dash.  I got five texts in 74 minutes.

218-396-2705
Look at this mess.  Who orders food from five places?  Am I that hungry?  I guess it could be someone having a party.

Join me while I dive deep into this.

  • Number 'originates' from Becker, Minnesota
  • The Pickle Barrel has locations in Montana and South Dakota.  Closest location to Becker is about a four hour drive.
  • Bulgogi BBQ just sounds generic.  There is no establishment named "Bulgogi BBQ" near Becker.  The closest Korean restaurant (at least a good one) is near Becker is in Minneapolis, about an hour away.
  • Noodle Me is in San Francisco, about a 29 hour drive.  Does Door Dash have a fucking airline service?
  • Chinese Dumpling House is in Port Hueneme, CA, about six hours South of San Francisco, and also 29 hour drive to Becker
  • Red & Hot Szechuan House is in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, an hour East of Port Hueneme, so only 28 hour drive to Becker.  
So here is the route that one would need to take to pick up food for this order

Douche Dash
Star at Noodle Me in San Francisco.   Drive down to Port Hueneme to pick up the Chinese Dumpling House Order.  Head East to Rancho Cucamonda to Red & Hot Szechuan House, and you better hope the food stays hot for this next journey.  Now, head Northeast to Sioux Falls to The Pickel Barrel, which happens to be the only non-Asian food on the order.  Wait, did you remember to pick up the 'Bulgogi BBQ' along the way.  You better hope the restaurant the order is from is somewhere on this route. That only took 36 hours...with no traffic.

Yeah, I get that there are multiple drivers, perhaps pilots, doing the delivery runs.  Still this is ridiculous.  Okay, now I am hungry.  Who should I call?  Fuck you!

  916-436-6090  Fair Oaks, CA - Well, at least this was not Door Dash.  Still...fuck you!
