Rejected - ah, the miracle of liberty. Americans think up the most unexpected things. Case in point: a phone number you can give someone to call, which rejects him (or her) for you:
A beleaguered woman can now give a number - not her home number - to an importuning swain. When he calls, a message announces, "The person who gave you this number does not want to talk to you or see you again. The deflated suitor can also dial through a recorded menu of "rejection specialists" offering further belittling barbs.
Small sociological point: lists copycat rejection lines - numbers in other cities. Of those, no city has more than two, except LA with 10. !
