Do not call

on February 21, 2008

Okay I am frustrated and slightly irritated.  For the pas week we have been getting all kinds of automated calls concerning free tickets for cruises,  health insurance, or of course your "please hold for an important message" and then after waiting so I can tell a real person to quit calling me they robot hangs up on me.  So I *69 and get the call number and find out the number is either discontected or has been scrambled so as not to give away thier identity.  Yes, I have registered our phone number with the do not call registry but appartently it doesn’t work.  I understand that our creditors and such can still call but these are robots calling my house and bugging me.  I did talk to one lady who was mad that I requested to be put on their do not call list.  You call me uninvited and then get mad when I tell you to not call me!!!  What is this sudden blitz of telemarketing calls?  I used to do this for a job and hated it, cold calls and such and it really is rude.  I am not rude to these people I just have better things to do than waste my time answering phone calls from robots or unsolicited ads.  So for my friends who call and get our voice mail it is because I don’t want to talk to them, leave me a message and I will call you back.  Since I have children answering the phone I am now leery of what people are spouting into the phone when they answer.   Okay vent over!

 

God bless.
