Quit calling, Tammy doesn't live here.

Starting in April, we have gotten the same "wrong number" call three to four times a week, every time two calls within five minutes of each other with the same caller ID slug (Poplawski Domon / 919-936-2209). Same conversation every time, too:

Me: Crawford residence.
Mystery Stupid Caller: Tammy?
Me: This is the Crawford residence: Melissa, Robert or Laurel. No Tammy.
Mystery Stupid Caller: Uh... Tammy?
Me: No, this is the CRAWFORD residence, 919-751-xxxx.
Mystery Stupid Caller: [hangs up]

Today we got a free copy of the Sunday local paper (since the federal Do Not Call list hasn't kicked in yet, the local paper tries to get us to subscribe at least twice a month) and in the second page of wedding listings, I found our Mystery Stupid Caller!

If you'd like to congratulate Michael Poplawski on his marriage, drop by the Furniture Fair electronics department (don't know which once, but there's only two in Goldsboro) or call him at 919-936-2209 and tell him the Crawford residence is glad he finally quit calling for Tammy.

Those are the angriest-looking newlyweds I have ever seen.

that's pretty funny anyway. :-)

That had me laughing so hard I couldn't relay it clearly to Robert. (:

Should I share the outtakes when we finally have wedding photos done? Himself in a zoot tux (Suavecito's has pinche cool threads) is going to rock, and I think I've already shared my fab c. 1950 dress with you and hiway.

There are 16 photos in the weddings/engagements/anniversaries section in this particular issue of the paper, and I'd say only 4 have at least one person that looks like they're genuinely smiling in them.

Maybe looking unhappy/angry in photos is in?

that's pretty spooky that the odd newspaper delivery had your mystery caller in it.
is it a common thing to list where the bride and groom went to school and are employed?

We get a free week of the paper pretty regularly since it's the local paper's way of trying to sell us on subscribing. I refuse to because it's a terribly inefficient format (5-6 separate 10-page sections, full size) with not much news for the price. I think I've been spoiled by the Denver Post.

It's common to see so many details in the wedding announcements here, but I've never gotten used to it -- my hometown paper only mentions schools if they're local and the text takes up about the same amount of space as the photo. I like their brevity.

I think the funniest part about the article is that they just had to tell you who poured the punch. lol.
Next time Jason and I go up to Furniture Fair, I'll look for him and drop kick him in his eye. :D

I'm still confused why they listed that, but other wedding announcements ended with several lines of when, where and who threw various showers for the couple. I think it must be one of those mysteries of the local paper I'm never going to understand.

I wouldn't kick him! I'm just glad he stopped calling looking for Tammy, although the most recent call was actually the day after the wedding. I'm not going to think about that, though.

Maybe she gave him the right number after they got married?

Awesome story!

That is one depressing wedding announcement.

You should send them a card or something with a note that says "Best wishes on your life together. Especially if it means I never receive another call for Tammy again."
