my office phone has caller id. my home phone has caller id blocking. when angel calls me at work the phone displays "DDD," which is phonespeak for "don't have a clue who it is" or something.

today was a little hectic. in addition to the usual tasks, we also had a 'critical incident' with one of our systems, a situation that results in much activity for yours truly. in the midst of this, i had to meet with a sales rep from one of our contract service providers.

during this sales rep meeting, several calls come in. seeing the extensions of various coworkers coming up on the display, i leave the callers to choose for themselves whether to hang up, call back, or leave a voice mail. call number four or thereabouts comes in, and i see the "DDD" on the display. i pick up the phone to tell angel that i'm in a meeting and i'll call her back shortly.

"angel," i begin.

"bob, it's me," the frigid voice of my ex on the line.

damn. i hate it when that happens.
