I'm likely, during the period of time of 5:30pm and 7:30pm, to be trying to get the baby to sleep. I have called my telephone company (they're a full service, family company: La Cosa Nostra Telecommunications) to get a new telephone feature added.

The service? No, not Caller ID. We already have that. No, not Call Block. No, this is a much more active feature: Call Insurance. Any telephone calls received during this two hour period will be traced, and a car full of Mafia thugs will be sent to the caller's house to gently reason with the people who made the call. Tonight's callers got off light: only their fingers and their jaws were broken. This prevents both dialed calls and voice calls. Repeated callers receive the special "Dirtnap" service. Do I need to be more clear?

You have a foot, use it...
Lemme see, you could kick the receiver off the hook when you don't want to be called....

Of course it may make that loud eeert-eert-eert sound, so then you would need to use more than your foot...

You could kick the receiver off the hook and then bend down and unplug the handset so that you couldn't hear the eert-eert-eert...

You could turn down the ringers...

You could just not answer the phone, if its just about the destraction...

Hey, wait a minute... WHAT'S YOUR BABY DOING WITH A PHONE IN IT'S ROOM? I didn't get an extension near my room till I was old enough to wire it my own d*** self...

Your baby is _very_ precocious if it can already wire up an extension all by itself...

You must be very proud...

I should call him about my electricians....

What's his number? And you have already given us the time frame where he is most likely to be near a phone...

P.S. there is a feature offered by Quest where you can put a cerfew (sp?) on a phone so that it won't take incomming calls during a particular period.
