Chutzpah: What's your gripe some crazy person has my cell number

So on to my new column idea- Chutzpah. This is a word that is used often by myself because sometimes I just can’t believe what people do. I mean really! I thought it would be fun to share our Chutzpah moments. The only rules are no names of stores, people, or events. You may also not use inappropriate language. Leave a comment listing your favorite Chutzpah moment! I mean laughter is the best medicine.

Or khutspe. Nerve, extreme arrogance, brazen presumption. In English, chutzpah often connotes courage or confidence, but among Yiddish speakers, it is not a compliment. For more Yiddish Words–Some looney has my cell number

Do not drink and dial. I repeat do not drink and dial. This is especially a good rule if you do not know the person you are calling. This person has seen fit to dial our number on multiple occasions all through the night. I usually pick up the phone and ask them to stop calling only to be met with foul language. I didn’t know what to do so I went to my cell phone carrier Verizon and received these instructions.

Log in into your MyVerizon account under the quick link menu select” Usage Control”

A new red menu will appear select “spam control”

Enter the number you wish to block and click Apply

    I have the same thing happening to me, but luckily I don’t leave my cell phone on all the time. So I just get multiple voice mail messages sometimes months apart from a drunk father calling his son who obviously won’t talk to him because he’s an alcoholic!
