Aggravated harassment by a psychopath. NOT the person you ever want as your next door neighbor.

Reminds me of the old joke:

“What do lawyers use for birth control?”

“Answer: their personalities!”

Is anybody curious how a nearly bankrupt school district (one that already pays teachers close to $85K/annually) can afford to employ an automated telephone system to alert parents to something as pedestrian as a weather-induced school closing or delay? How much does that cost the US taxpayer?

Dude - get a life.

And I would guess - this lawyer would be the first to complain if somehow he missed this information and drived his sweet kids to a closed school...

Unfortunately not every parent stays up to watch the 11PM news to see if the school district has made a decision about school

Not every snow/sleet storm stops at 9PM so such a decision can be made the night before

And many DC area parents depart for their jobs before dawn due to the commute times

So as annoying as this was, I dont see a better way to make sure households get the word

And finally, this axxhole could change his notification phone number to his cell phone, if he took the time to get involved

Nice. I love it. If that type of citizen petitioning for redress of grievances is “psychopatic” call me Ishmael.

I get these robo calls constantly in our school district. Usually in the evening if the school is announcing an upcoming meeting or if one of my kids missed school. The bad weather calls also come in but they’re not until about 6 AM. Either way no big deal, I’ve got an answering machine and I miss zero sleep.

This guy must be wound pretty tight.

Does this guy have a brain? All I do is unplug my phone at night and plug it in the next morning when I’m ready to be pestered by phone calls. I agree it’s a hassle that a lot of modern landlines no longer have those little dials on the side where you can turn the ringer off, but it’s not that much tougher to just unplug the jack from the wall. Sheesh.

I hope this call demonstrates why a 4:30 a.m. call does more to annoy than to inform.
Then why don't you just turn your cell phone OFF?

I heard a story from the early days of programmable dialers. I
think it was from Wang Labs. They had just undergone a
contraction, i.e., layoffs, and one disgruntled programmer had
one of their devices call up the then-president's home phone
every fifteen minutes.

I have no idea if a message was played.

I met a guy that said he lived in an area with a state prison, and an
automated phone alert was being considered to phone
residents in the event of an escape.

Get you to at least check your doors and windows, perhaps call the
police if somebody wants you to open the door at 4:30AM...
