This is Getting Silly

In just a little over two hours I have gotten five, yes count 'em...FIVE, calls from telemarketers. Three of the calls came within one hour and two calls were seven minutes apart according to my caller ID. I don't even answer my phone anymore unless I recognize the number on the caller ID. I need to call the "Do Not Call" registry or something. There has to be some kind of legislation that can be passed that can stop telemarketing completely. My feeling on marketing or selling products is this: if I want what you are selling, *I* will contact *you*. You don't have to get in touch with me.

What's even worse is that most of these calls are made by computers and the majority of them simply have pre-recorded messages.

If anyone sees a telephone come flying by their window, it will be mine.

Some politically oriented phone calls are not covered by DoNotCall.gov, so I use *60 on them (selective call block). :-)

They have been mostly from McCain 2008, and I'm a registered Democrat. It shows up as Paging Phone CA, or whatever state the call center happens to be in.

Lucky for me I don't get the politically oriented calls anymore, but I get 5000 calls a day giving me a new satellite system, warning me how my credit card interest rates are going up, or selling me insurance.
