I just can't believe it.  It started happening in 2006, and I had all but forgotten about it.  
I get calls on my cell phone for the guy who previously had my number, Old Darryl.  
I first blogged about it HERE.  
I learned his last name HERE, and found out the cops were looking for him.  His last name is Wallicker or Walliker or Walicker... who knows how it's spelled?  I've tried googling him with every spelling I could think of with no success.
And then there was THIS TIME, when some so-called "friend" of his decided to get in touch with him after three years of his not having the same cell number.  
Today it was someone in India, judging by the accent, asking for Darryl and mispronouncing his last name badly.  
You know, the funny thing is that I was glad, after all this time, to be getting a call for old Darryl; I've kinda missed him.

I tried to call At&t the other day and they still ask if I had the last name of Wade (all recorded and metallic voices)and I have had this number for about 3.5 years.

This post makes me think of the old Bob Newhart show! Remember 'this is my brother Darryl and my other brother Darryl'???? I loved that show!

Sounds like he might be a Wall-Licker.

Too funny. There is a local taxidermist who has a cell # similar to mine. I get 1 or 2 calls per year for him. Always interesting! The first one was "Yah, I'm callin' about my deer haid." I said, beg your pardon? Finally, I put it all together.. lol. -Tammy

Now if only he would call asking for himself.
