Since yesterday I’ve officially had it with telemarketers and charities and what not calling my house. Rather than let the phone go to the answering machine, which they hang up on, I’m answering every call to inform them not to call me anymore. I’m over it.
This all began yesterday with one 866 number that calls us constantly. The calls begin at 8am in the morning and sometimes go through 8pm or later at night. They call at least 5 times a day, sometimes multiple times an hour.
Finally sick of them, I answered the phone with a very angry “Hello!” I got no response, I said “HELLO” again. Nothing, so I hung up. Withing two minutes they called back. My BF was sitting on the couch as I told him “It’s these damn 866 people that call us a million times a day, they aren’t saying anything, I know someone on the phone, no automated electronic message has started and would have bye now.” *CLICK* they hung up on me.
That was it, I hit redial and got a voicemail, saying I had reached some outreach or charity program or something, I can’t even remember I was so annoyed honestly. I finally left a message along the lines of “Hi yeah, you call us about a million times a day and I’m sick of it. Take our number off your list. If you are looking for money, you are not going to get any at this point. If you call again I will answer the phone with a barrage of obscenities instead of hello.”
They have not called back 🙂
