'Loser' Phone Number Mean to the Extreme

September 15, 2002

The idea of a woman giving out a bogus "loser's" phone number instead of her own is an old one ("Hey, Loser, Got a Message for You," Sept. 9). Some years ago I met an attractive young woman and asked for her number. She gleefully gave it to me. I phoned the very next day, only to hear a taped recording: "Thank you for calling the Los Angeles Zoo.... " My only solace was a good laugh because, even though the joke was on me, it was truly funny.

Unfortunately, Jeff Goldblatt's "loser's" phone number is lean on humor and mean to the extreme.
