Am tired of unwanted calls, have tried all possible way to block his number but he still calls, I don’t want him no more, wait why must the person be “he” why not she 😂, this nonsense must stop this year.

Hello guys we here again for one of the most enjoyable topic I have to talk about, over the past few days I receive a message from one of my friends asking me how to block a certain number from calling his line, we got to the point where I have to ask her why she wanted to block his number and guess I was “just looking for what she has to say” and she said the person who had called she has no idea of and doesn’t know who was calling and the person seem to be disturbing her.

And guess what guys I was thinking the entirely different thing you know “I don’t want you.”
