Default Got a Phone Call

Has any one ever got a phone call from a guy to "talk" about paint. I got a phone from this guy today and he wanted to talk about painting. I am not sure about what, but hes from WI. He said he saw me from here and gave me a call. At the end of the message he says from a automotive seminars.

Just wondering if anyone has ever talk to this guy. Hes got a toll free Number.

PS
If your the guy that called me please explain yourself a little bit better and what it is you want to talk about. E-mail me or Call me again.

Nope. I have had plenty of other funny things happen to me, but not that.

Just curious Severson, do you have a Swedish accent, or is your spelling that atrocious?

I have had a few instances of people emailing me through my website posing as prospective employment candidates, basically trying to do a little espionage. They are easy to spot. And fortunately, with Google Analytics on board, we can track and identify them. They literally clicked on the link to my site from Painttalk, which shows up as a source in Analytics, then emailed through the website, which Analytics tracks by geographic location. Its very easy to backtrack who, what, when and where. I'm sure others here have been entertained by similar follies.

Severson, are you a twelve year old troll pawning himself off as a grown up painting contractor? Come on! "Worlds best painter"?

This is the self-proclaimed "new school painter". He's a rebel and a runner. A signal turning green. He's a restless young romantic, wants to run the big machine.

He's got to make his own mistakes
and learn to mend the mess he makes
He's old enough to know whats right
but young enough not to choose it
He's noble enough to win the world
but weak enough to lose it
He's a new school painter
