Phone messages

A few times a year, I get phone messages meant for a lawyer named Donald Simmons, who apparently deals with immigration. The past couple of days, I've gotten home to find a message from someone trying to reach him, saying it's urgent, only they don't leave their number. I hope he doesn't get deported over this.

We get mail for a lawyer all the time. With our postal box on it. So I looked him up, called him, and told him what I had. He was really cool about it. Perhaps looking up Donald Simmons in immigration and telling him that "X has called my number a couple of times" could help?

Have you tried *69 to get the number they're calling from?

Alternatively, you might change your outgoing message to include, "If you're trying to reach the immigration lawyer by the same name, his number is..." Just until this person stops leaving messages on your machine.

It wasn't the last phone call I got, so I don't think *69 would work.

I don't really want to change my message as this only happens a few times a year. I just want people to learn to leave their phone numbers.
