LL Bean as Big Brother

I called LL Bean last night to place an order, something I rarely do, & haven't done in a year. The woman answered the phone, "LL Bean. Am I speaking with ?" Whoa! Very scary. She also knew my address, phone no., etc. And no doubt my bra size. LOL. Technology is getting WAY out of control.

Oh, I don't think I'd like that!

Wow! I had no idea that some companies used prison inmates to take orders...that seems so wrong.
I have a block on my number that doesn't allow my name to show up when I call people/places.

I don't see any reason for them having Caller ID.


And no, I didn't know prisoners were sometimes used as CS reps. Yikes! I used to get collect calls from somebody in our local prison. (All calls from the prison must be collect, even local calls.) He must have started out dialing at random, or looked for listings in the book that were obviously women alone, then kept my number.
