Why would your accountant give a hoot about your beeper? As long as you pay him/her, what difference does it make?

You'd think so, but in reality, their #1 concern is my lack of PhotoShop.

I wouldn't know. They can't call and tell me. I only accept Western Union telegrams.

With my iPhone I have a contact list for telemarketers. When I get a call it goes into that contact and all the numbers in that contact have a different ringtone, never to be answered again.
