    One night a headhunter called me *at home*. I never gave anyone my home number. He said he got it off my resume, which was a lie; he must have looked it up in the phone book (it is listed). I never even gave anyone my resume, since I was not looking for work at the time; it was on my web site, a few links off the home page. So I said don't call me at home; *he* got mad at *me*, saying I should not put my resume online if I didn't want to be contacted about a job (at home around dinnertime, presumably).

    Then I realized he had called my work number several times (which was on my resume, and was only ever answered by voicemail), and I said that if someone did not return repeated unsolicited calls, he should take the hint that he's not wanted, and that he should never call anyone unsolicited at home. I doubt I made a dent in his already broken psyche, but one can hope.
