Okay I was just reading about the adult babies and how sick it is just the other day and while I am out with my son to the store my husband gets a phone call about cloth diapers (I am a WAHM with a diapering business) I think okay no big deal I get them a lot, I do some local selling so phone calls aren't out of the ordinary, but then they start telling my husband that they need adult sizes and how big can I make them, and please can I ship rush so they get there soon. He said he had no clue and to call back when I was home. They haven't called back but EWW I don't want them to either! I mean I guess it would be okay if it were for an adult with disabilites or something but I would want serious proof that that is what it was being used for you know? AND how would you ask for that kind of proof? I just want to stay away from it all together, but any clue how they got my phone #? they weren't local it was an out of area number and my # isn't on my web site.

Have any other business mammas gotten a phone call like this? Eww speaking of throwing up...~

Yup your right wanna. I had my number listed on my site and thought it was a great idea. I had lots of customers call me for help etc.
Then one day I get the first adult, then the next day another one, then the next day 2. It was totally weird. Then I didn't get any for a while, then they started again.
I went through and removed my phone number from my website and removed it from the directories I could think of, left the fax number on though but that's strictly fax.

It is down right gross. I had people calling asking what my store hours were and wanting directions to my store. Um don't think so.

I'll have to remember to refer them to Sue if I get anymore calls :Puke
