    Lonely Japanese man.

    A lonely Japanese man has been arrested for allegedly calling directory assistance thousands of times because he liked to be scolded by female operators, police and reports said.

    He placed 2,600 calls to directory help reached in Japan by dialling 104 between early June and mid-November, a police spokesman said.

    He reportedly told police that he was lonely and grew to enjoy annoying the operators.
    Telephone operators who in Japan are almost always women nicknamed him the "don't-hang-up-man.

    I used to work for an Ask-A-Nurse line and we had a few regular callers who were VERY strange, including one who claimed he was having an affair with Jane Pauley
