    Link: 1-900-CRYING - There was once a time in the late `80s when people had so much money, they wasted it on money scams like this...

    There`s probably a voice on the other end telling them how much money they`re wasting.

    "Current amount wasted: $45. That could have fed 57 starving children, but you spent it on a phone-call you selfish b*tch"

    Ok OK, I think I figured it out. the number links the crying people to other crying people thus it`s like a large web of crying people.

    It`s probably some really contrived story about a fat man who`s struggled with his weight all of his life;
    People tease him for it, turned down for dates, lost a parent to medical complications of obesity, and you think it`s all gonna get better until you get a screetch in your ear reminding you that you spent two dollars to have a phone call jack your ear off for one minute without letting you come.
    Some people need that itch scratched...I`m ok without.

    here are some free of charge:

    you`re why your parents got divorced

    buddy, your dog when u were 7, actually died, and did not just run away

    you donated all your toys/clothes/jewelry/money to charity in your sleep

    your parents are dead

    you have "insert std/HIV/cancer here"

    that girl you scored last night at the bar was a tranny

    you`re house/condo/apartment caught fire and everything was destroyed

    people laugh at you when you leave a room

    you`ve actually been in a coma for the last 23 years, your perspective of reality is a military experiment that you were volunteered for

    there`s nothing you can do to lose those 15 pounds

    have a happy cry!

    What happened with all these dumb 900 numbers was that they made money off the countless dimwits who said "Oh, I`m not really interested - I just wanted to see if it was real" or "I`m not really interested - I just wanted to check out what it was" or a dozen other variations on this. Dimwit would always explain by starting out with this contradictory and clear statement of self-denial: "Oh, I`m not REALLY interested..."

    So they were pretending they were above it all, and not like someone "who would really call", whatever THAT`s suppose to mean. Of course, the 900 number took their money same as anybody else when they called.

    I used to rage so much at these idiots.

    Maybe they`re crying over the outrageous telephone bill that they`re going to get. poo, at $2 a minute I`d cry too. This and the partylines were the downfall of the 80`s. 20 way calling when no one can hear anyone at a premium rate was the biggest rip since the pet rock.
