Missing Wedding Invites and the Refusal to Communicate Update#20

<< < (7/7)

If you are dealing with people who insist on wringing blood from a stone ( i.e. , getting info from you that you simply do not have . ) then please feel free to use my favorite tactic -

Go stupid on 'em .

Just keep repeating " I dunno ." like a slightly dim parrot until they slam down the phone in sheer exasperation .

Works every time . ;D

I hear the Queen Mary 2 has a very nice one.

"Why on Earth do you think I know or care? CALL HER!!!!"

And quit taking their calls until after the wedding.
