I'm looking for an employer that knows how to treat an engineer with dignity and money. These fools are gonna pay one way or the other.

It's a wrong number. It should be x = 11000, y=11110 etc, then you need a telephone with only 2, sorry 10, buttons

I have the funny feeling that these guys are also looking for a date - and have been for a very long time.

When calling this number the message will likely say:

We're sorry, all of our representatives are serving other customers. However, your call is important to us and will be answered in the 3rd or 4th order in which it was received. Your estimated wait time is 1.372 x 10E14 minutes.
