When I decided to get an 800 number for my pager, I got a few voice messages intended for the previous owner of the number. Eventually I got a message from the guy and he had lost the number (late payment on his bill, he claimed) just a few days prior. He was asking me to "give him his old number back". I called him (collect) and told him to deal with it. I had already had my new number put onto business cards, and would not give it up willingly.

After a few days of continuing to get his business pages, I lost my patience. I called one of his customers back and told him that he could go f*ck himself. The guy who previoulsy owned the number backed down and I never had another call.
