Good Thing I Have a Fax Machine

The multi-function printer/copier/fax machine we have here at home is rarely used to receive faxes. In fact, I don't remember ever doing so. But this morning, I started getting phone calls from a fax machine. I hung up on the first one, assuming it was one of the random-number fax machine callers attempting to spam. But it called back a few minutes later. And again. Seeing that it might have taken many tries before it gave up, I turned the printer on and the answering machine off and let the next incoming call trigger the fax machine. Turned out to be a medical bill for someone (not me) addressed to the wrong fax number. Fortunately, it had a voice phone number, so I called and left a message telling them they had the fax number wrong. A few minutes ago, I got a call from the company sending the bill apologizing for having got the number wrong. I shredded the mis-addressed bill, of course; it's none of my business.
