Early Wednesday afternoon Forestville resident Al Tunis telephoned the Forestville branch of Webster Bank, and received a busy signal.  “I don’t get it, said a frustrated Tunis.  “It usually rings and someone picks up but this time it just went bonk, bonk, bonk.” 


Mr. Tunis said he would try calling again later in the week.


Officials at Webster Bank were apologetic and urged Mr. Tunis to call again. 


The phone company had no comment.
