Telemarketing


Here's a new one! We always put our phone numbers on "do not call" lists, but we always get the occasional call even so. I love the "we are a paid fund raiser for ..." Like I don't understand that something like 90% of the money raised goes to the paid part and about 10% goes to the for part. Tonight...it's 8 P.M. and I just put on my pajamas because it's dark and Mike thinks I am going to get up at 5:30 A.M. to ride with him to Eustis (if he carries me and my pillow out to the car!)...a call from the Police Association of Florida. "Please hold for the next available..."

Riiight. That's happening. Hold for an unsolicited telemarket call. What is the world coming to?

  1. I consider my self a very polite person. However, the few telemarketers that sneak through "do not call" under strange pretenses, get only an ear full of clunk as I hang up. If they are lucky, they get a "Not interested." growl before I bang the reciever. They really bring out the ugly in me.

  2. When I get those calls, I cannot hang up fast enough!

I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
