Letter: Phone pests

Click to follow
ANNALISA Barbieri suggests (tongue-in-cheek) that using the 141 facility on the phone is a crafty device for someone cheating on their partner ("It's a jungle out there", Real Life, 25 February). It's also pretty cool for my daughter's "uncle" who can inquire about her uniform and her knickers with no fear of reprisal from me or the police.

Can anyone think of a decent reason why a person, gaining verbal access to a household, should wish, or be allowed, to withhold their identity? I don't see why I should invest in call-screening equipment and extra rental just to convenience adulterers.
