WHO HAS TOO MUCH TIME ON HER HANDS?


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.

866
888
877
410?!?!
973

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.

Morons.

    Why don’t you get yourself on the national “do not call list”? Very easy and effective.
