During this election season I am particularly thankful for Caller ID.
It's only September and I'm already getting calls from special interest groups with scary messages about how my eyebrows are going to fall off if I don't vote for or against XYZ. Come October we'll be getting calls from every politician under the sun begging for votes. Living in a "battleground" state is just going to make everything that much worse.
Maybe my use of Caller ID will inspire some stalker politician calls:
"Hi, it's Sen _________. I'm worried about you. You never answer my calls. I just call and call and you never pick up. I mean, I know you're home. It's dinnertime. I'm all about family values, but please, get up from the table and talk to me. C'mon, baby, I need you're vote."
"Hi. It's me again. Now I know you're home. It's 8 o'clock and you've just put the kids to bed. I know you want to crash on the couch with your husband, but darlin' you've gotta hear me out. We need you. I need you. Vote for me, okay?"
"Do I need to come over there?"
Anyway, I'm really thankful for Caller ID.
