POTS stands for plain old telephone service. I like the ol' wired land-line. It gives me an odd sense of security. So we've got one. At our last apartment our phone number had apparently rather recently belonged to "Diamondback Exteriors." About... 10 times a week we'd get calls for them. More during the rainy season. Apparently they did stucco because people asked for that a lot. Our answer message was pretty close to this:

"Hi, you've reached the Huffs. We don't do stucco. If you're looking for Diamondback Exteriors, you're going to have to call another number. We don't know what that number is. But if you're looking for the Huffs, you've reached us! Leave us a message after the beep."

This is what our message now says:

"Hi you've reached the Huffs, not the Royal China Chinese restaurant. If you're looking for chinese food, we can't help you because we don't serve any. But, if you're looking for the Huffs, leave us a message after the beep. Thank you, very much!"

Sometimes lightning strikes twice.

I always get calls for Diamondback Spas so we're a little matchy-matchy there.
