    Many years ago Verizon somehow had my cell phone number programmed into their system as the phone number for one of their technicians, and I would occasionally get phone calls asking if I was "almost at the site." The first few times, I corrected them and told them they had the wrong number. They in turn told me they would "note the account," but the calls kept coming. So then I started to get creative. I would prank them when they called. One time I told them that I had been drinking and wasn't in any condition to drive out to the site, and then hung up on them. On a follow up call, they got super angry with me and told me someone had been fired because of my pranks. I told them to fuck off because I asked them repetedly not to call me, and they kept doing it.

    I no longer have that phone number. There is some old Asian dude who has it now, and I have been told he will pretend to be me when people call and say really fucked up shit. Karma I guess. lol

    Okay, I don't know how Canada does things. In the U.S., that would be a HIPAA violation and a physician practice could get some serious fines as a result. In rare circumstances, HIPAA violations can even result in jail time.

    It was a test. We put him up to it to evaluate your sanity.

    You failed.

    In my professional opinion, you should stop having sex with every moose you encounter on the side of the road.

    I'm sure it was a self proclaimed doctor. We have a lot of this here in Canada, someone treating people with herbs or a foot massage.

    One time I got a scam call from a number so I called it back after and some kid picked up and I told him right off, told him to GTFO etc... and he kept denying it and I would say I know it was fucking you etc... etc... and then later I learned that scammers can spoof numbers so some random number shows up on your phone so it turns out I just called some kid out of the blue and swore at him for like 5 minutes.

    The phone companies should be required to have systems that can't be spoofed.

    It is possible the person/patient waived confidentiality in a way that the doctor's office calling can leave detailed information on the voicemail. Places do have a form that patients can sign saying it is okay to do that instead of just leaving a voicemail saying "hey, call us back.".

    I live in Canada, and I don't get snowed in. I'm Canadian. Snow doesn't stop me from doing anything, never has.

    Snow is my bitch.
