    Yeah! And I'm mighty pissed about it! I have my alerts/notifications shut off, as always, and it still came through.

    No, I got a personal call from President Trump apologizing for bothering me on a rare day off with a test. :cool:

    Nope, but a message showed up on the TV saying one may or may not receive a text message. And no action needed to be taken, or something like that.
