Wrong Number Nightmare

Tape & Copy: Kathi Grobsmith, a college student in Rochester, New York, is living a wrong number nightmare. For some inexplicable reason, the information line for Census 2000 has been routed to her number. She's been taking thousands of phone calls for the last two weeks, trying to be patient, trying to be polite, and trying to convince confused callers that they've got the wrong number.
