Some friends and I were arranging an exotic dancer for a friend’s going away party and learned the hard way that *67 doesn’t work to block your number from cell phones anymore. It won’t show up as “restricted” or “private caller” it shows up now as, well, you.
My friend who’s in the real estate business, who says he commonly calls clients using *67 and explains that he’s calling from a different location was mortified.
I’ll admit that i’ve made a few star 67 calls in my day.
Anyone know when this changed or why?
So yeah, the way we found out is that a few of the calls turned into prank calls and somehow (?!) the exotic dancers and their eminemy boyfriends called back.
Then we tried calling each others phones.
This sudden knowledge made the room feel like a Raymond Carver story, as if all of us were sitting at the glass breakfast table in silence, a bottle of cheap vodka in the center, tumblers all around, the 5am sun starting to shine through the window, and a feeling like we all lost our way somewhere.
Well, mostly Arash and Steve had that look about them.
