Can i have your home phone number?
    #2345915 - 02/17/04 03:32 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

i can believe i was asked this at best buy when i checled out.

i mean, first it was the zipcode, and then some people would ask you for your adress, but my phone number?

when i got asked this, i shouted out "NO!!!!" in outrage, and i think i scared the cashier.

regardless this vast categorising of consumerism is driving me nuts.

Kindly say yes and give out a XXX number. The cashier will never complain.

Yeah they ask for the phone number around here too. Circuit City is even worse though...last time I shopped there they asked for my name, FULL address, and also my telephone number. All of this info is actually printed out on your enormous receipt too. Anyways, I just gave 'em fake info, just like I do everywhere else that asks.

I don't really care to much, it's all a matter of what I buy where, and if I've bought anything from them before. Like a music store I don't really care, I spend most of my time in the local music stores anyway. Best buy I don't really care. it's like target, or walmart, or places like that, that if they ask for anything I just say no and they let me go on my way ... Maybe it's just me ...

The main reason they really ask is to know where to expand toward like is the area you traveled from a good place to set up shop

I remember one time I was at Best Buy with a friend of mine....he bought some movie and when he checked out, we got a really hot cashier. When she asked for his phone number, he goes "Why, want to call me to go out sometime?" and she gave him a very, very evil look. It was seriously fucking priceless. "Sorry, I'm an asshole" was all that came out of his mouth after that.

Good Times

If you have supermarket cards, they got info on you. I really don't like it- even if it's under 'legitemate' reasons or whatever. Nobody should really know that shit.

I had a company ask my bank account number over the phone just so I can get a stupid brochure mailed to me. It's friggin redikulas.

And watch out who you give your SSN to. :blush:

I like to say no aor no thanks.

They often don't know what to do.

I try not to do the fake number thing becouse I prefer resisting things like this.

Sometimes they act mad but thats ok becouse they don't understand where I'm coming from. Little changes become big changes.

Like "please extend right forearm so we can scan the personal identification chip! Have a nice day Mr. 123-45-6789"

Oh well, I wonder if thats how it'll be with our kids. All in the name of convienience.

Oh, and cheaper prices.

I just say: I don't give out that number.

They usually just type in 999-9999 or something similar. I did say to a cashier once, after she asked my what my phone number was, what her phone number was, she looked at me kind of confused though. She was cute.

tell them "yeah my home phone number is Nine."
"niiinnee...."
"Nine. That's it."
"umm do you have a different number we can contact you at?"
"Yeah - Seven."
"sevvenn.."
"Have you not realized yet that I don't want to give you my home phone number?"

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

Just tell 'em you don't have a phone.  Works for me (not having a phone that is).  People get kinda annoyed that they cannot call me whenever they like, but my life has become a lot more peaceful since I got rid of the damn thing.

(... I do have an IP address, so people can still email me.  I doubt that they have a field for that in their system though.  My phone number?  Sure... you can reach me via SMTP at 192.168.0.1 :grin:)
