this has been going on for a long time, and I have kept quiet about it. several times a month, rick calls me and doesn't say anything. I am subjected to the background noise of whatever he is doing(sorry hero). but this is the final straw:

on my last day in the wsop, he calls again, and again just makes unrecognizable noises in the background. after I listen for a while and hang up, he calls back again. fossilman was sitting right next to me, and he can confirm this as I showed him the caller id on my phone. we both listened for a while and concluded rick needs more fiber in his diet.

but enough is enough. don't call me unless you are going to talk!

rick you can call me instead any time. the background noise of your life is more interesting than anything anybody has to say to me anyway. you have my undivided attention.

snakehead is your real name aaron a. aaronson? if so he probably sits on his phone and dials your # first because its the first name in his book.

Apparently Rick has no friends with names beginning with A. Or he has you in there as 3-bet brett which would be tough to top.

Both you and Fossilman listened to background noise for awhile and decided someone else needs a fiber rich diet! C'mon now, who needs more fiber?

Somebody needs to show Rick the keylock function on his cell phone.

Ö.Nokiaholic.

When I was younger only the big shots had cell phones. Back then most were car phones. It seemed strange to see the big shots doing ďbig shot businessĒ rather than listening to the car radio like the rest of us.

Eventually many of us had ďportableĒ cell phones. Motorola had the market back then. Their phones were clunky, hard to carry around, better for calling AAA if your car broke down than for calling up a crony to let him know the 20/40 was good that day (yes, back then the games werenít always good).

I canít remember when I saw my first Nokia. They just seemed to be everywhere all of a sudden. Now you could carry a cell phone around, even if it took one of those clunky belt clips or cases. Back then I could control it. I guess my eyesight was better, the buttons bigger, the display larger, and I didnít keep it in my pocket. Little did I know what was to come.

Then I saw it. The Nokia 8290 (http://www.nokiausa.com/phones/8290)

It was so small. It got great ratings. It slipped into my pants without producing unsightly bulges. But with the keys on the outside and me being me it brought out an insidious monster lurking inside.

Imagine you are in a room and the stereo is blasting, a right wing talk show host is jabbering on the radio, all while you are trying to figure out if Mike l.ís checkraise on the turn with bottom pair, a backdoor flush and an overcard is in fact the right play. Thatís my mind. It leaves little room for the little things. So things go amiss. I walk out of the bathroom with hands not quite dry. An occasional ďsleeperĒ remains in the corner of my eye. Thatís not good in my business.

With the Nokia 8290 I lost control. I loved it. I used every day. Then things got bad. I canít see the display that well. The keys are too small. And I forget to lock it. I should have known better.

Snakehead isnít the only one Iíve hurt. He isnít even at the top of my speed dial since he is in fact listed alphabetically as Snakehead. Many have born the pain and interrupted lives caused by my carelessness.

Since meeting in this group and finally discovering this thread, Iíve Googled for information about twelve step programs. I became even more confused.

I decided to get a flip phone instead. /images/graemlins/grin.gif

Iím clean now. Snakehead, next time I call Iíll talk if you can stand answering one more time.

PS Maybe Fossilman's good luck came from listening to me!

Rick, You've never called me by mistake. BTW, just to show you how informed I am, I found out yesterday that Greg won. Don't you have a photo of you, me, Greg, and M at Foxwoods? Maybe if we all sign it, it might be worth . . . like a quarter or something.

Wife got a call from son #3 one day...caller ID said it was his cellphone....

He had left for work a bit earlier, and the timing was such that he could still be in the car.

In any case, all wife could hear was...."burblemumblesqiiiisssshhhhhgarbleburble" ........

....Wife semi-panics...."OMG!! Did he get in a car accident or something?"...

She starts to scream sons name into the phone......

I call his work # & he asnwers the phone....np....

I ask him to check his cellphone.....

Uh...Oh....It's in his back pocket, and he must have sat on it in such a way that the autodialer kicked in......

Wife has been screaming into his butt for past few minutes......pretty funny for all 3 of us after wife came out of shock.

We hardly ever communicate by phone (past or present so you're not on my speed dialer. Did you want me to put you on it /images/graemlins/grin.gif?

I just remember having lunch at the Chinese restaurant inside Foxwoods about three years ago. No pictures, no M.

Anyway, I told a guy I was playing with last night that my cell phone was famous at the WSOP. It's nice to be touched by greatness.

Winning the WSOP couldn't have happened to a nicer guy (unless it was you or me).

Rick,

NO! Don't put me on your cell phone. There's that time difference you know.

M met us after we had dinner, and you arranged a group photo, I think.

BTW, where's the digital shots?

Don't worry Rick,
My phone changed languages from English to Spanish while sitting in my pocket and I haven't figured out to get it back.

Simple fix - just learn Spanish! /images/graemlins/grin.gif

John,

I still have my money order stub from three years ago when I backed Greg for $100. It has Greg's name and address on it. I wonder if it's worth anything now?

Good Luck
