When my wife’s friend Val phones, it always says Frnk Main on the telephone. So when I see Frnk Main I know it’s Val. Today the phone rang and I saw Frnk Main and I gave the phone to my wife. She said hello and then she said to me. “It’s not for me. It’s Matty.”

It was Matt Maiocco. “I didn’t know it was you,” I said. “It didn’t have your name.”

“Did it say, ‘Frank Main?’” he asked.

“Yeah,” who’s Frank Main?”

“I don’t know.”

So I have two questions for Zohn readers. Who is Frank (Frnk) Main and why does that name show up on some phone calls?

    Hi Cohn.

    My phone bill, dated 4/14/2014, has a $0.70 phone call from FRNK MAIN CA. I’m not finding anything in my daily schedule that shows I made the call. I had never heard of the mysterious Frnk Main until I Googled it tonight.

    I believe that FRNK stands for Fremont/Newark
