Alarmed
Okay, my heart is racing, and I'm trying to calm down.

I just got a collect phone call from the Gwinnett County Detention Center. It was from out of the state for certain because it said it was "Out of Area". The voice who asked for billing acceptance was barely audible, but it sounded sorta like he said "Jeff", or some other single-syllable name.

I accepted the charges, but didn't recognize the voice. They asked who I was, and I responded the way my Mama always told me to, not to give out my name unless I know who it is.

I said, "You called me. Who are you?"

And they hung up. I don't want to make any assumptions of who it was, but it was very disturbing, based on the location of the call.

mood: nervous nervous

No, I didn't think it was Britt. I did *live* in Gwinnett with my ex-fiance for a while though, and he's still there with his family, friends, and everyone else I knew.

Wow, they're website is very useful and cool. That's actually very neat to see, law enforcement and detention making use of web technology.

Before we moved into our new building here at work and all our phone numbers changed, I used to get a call from a particular somebody in an out-of-state prison about once a week. I refused the charges every time since I didn't recognize the name or voice, but that never seemed to discourage him.
