Nancy...with all due respect, it isn't completely illogical to ask if
there is another number. I have my home phone and a cell phone and I
don't think I'm in the minority. They can ask and all you have to do
is say no. If they didn't ask, a majority of their users wouldn't be
contacted whern they could be. Personaly, I'm glad they do ask.
