Another Phone Tip
another phone "thing" to share... if you ever have to make a collect call, know what company you're asking for. There are actual companies with names like "any one is fine" or "just pick one" because companies know that customers often don't have a company name in mind and when the operator asks, the person will say a handful of things basically telling the operator that it doesn't matter to them. Instead, your call is placed through an actual company called "it doesn't matter to me" (or something similar) and instead of being charged 10 cents/min like AT&T might charge, they're often charged ten times that or more! You can't dispute the charge because technically you DID request that company, you just didn't know it.
