WHO HAS TOO MUCH TIME ON HER HANDS?
I tried to sleep in today, but the phone kept ringing non-stop. I’d pick up and there would be long pauses after which a heavily accented person (or a digitized voice) would respond offering me one product or another.
I would mumble something about my level of interest and hang up.
After three times, I decided to give up on sleep and get up.
Of course, the calls didn’t stop just because I was eating, watching TV or blogging, instead of trying to sleep.
So, I got me a pen and paper and wrote down every strange number on my caller id.
And then I proceeded to call each and every one.
“This is [insert annoying ass company] How may I help you?”
“Stop calling my house.”
AOL probably had the funniest response to my request. After getting my name, address
and phone number added to their ‘Do-Not-Solicit’ roster, this chick asks me if I “would interested in receiving information about their partnership with the Video Professor?”
Uhmm…let me think about it. Why don’t you call me tomorrow. Oh. Wait. You can’t.
