Visual Description:  I believe Caller ID was created – especially – with the dinner hour in mind!

(Excellent!  Selling you some crap you don’t want, surveys, politicking, and collection calls – they all come around the dinner hour.  The worst ones though are the robo-dialed calls.  You pick up the call, in good faith, with a cheery HELLO!, and all you receive is either an extremely pregnant pause, or a recording that says:  All of our representatives are busy.  Please hold for the next available . . .  You have the nerve to bug me during my dinner, and there’s not even a live voice on the other end???  That is the pinnacle of rudeness.  Those A-holes get hung up on, immediately!  Live voice/no delay . . . no problem.  At least I’ll hear them out long enough to tell them to call back.  It’s crap like this computer automation that makes me say that Ted Kaczynski was right!  I could go on for hours, but I’ll stop right here.

Good pun, though!  We actually have a new word for the ralis95 clue word database, in “fresh”.  Can you believe it?  Fresh???  Ya never know.  I liked the jumbling of “influx”.  The answer letter layout was fantastic.  Nothing obvious in there.  And, a nice job conveying the family’s annoyance!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Excellent, excellent, excellent, puzzler. I get sooooooooo irritated with these callers. On the ones who answer me immediately, I usually let them give their spiel, then I tell them I’m not interested and –these days– begin to ask them to remove me from their call list — and I get hung up on. OMG…I get to totally POd! A sign of the times I reckon…but I don’t like it! And those credit card people…EGAD!
