That’s it, no more I’m drawing a line in the sand. I am never answering the phone to a number that I don’t recognise. I’m sending out a mass email to all my friends and family explaining this fact and that if they have a silent number they will need to text me or I won’t answer anymore. How many godforsaken lists sold to marketing companies can one person be on. Ringing at dinner time and worse if you don’t pick up the keep ringing. I mean if nobody picks up after about 5 or 6 rings you should figure that they’re out or not answering.
But no and our house phone has some weird ass protocol that I have to go through to shorten the time it takes to go to msg bank and I still haven’t figured out how to use it. So it rings, and it rings and it rings until I am quite prepared to take a cleaver to the device just to shut it the hell up. (haven’t figured out how to mute the call sound either sigh)
Do I want solar panels, how’s my insurance, would I like a free holiday – just come to a free lecture and you too could experience the joys of timeshare. What’s worse is they seem to have my mobile as well so if I don’t answer the house phone next thing I know my mobile kicks into gear and the whole song and dance starts again. Fortunately I know how to mute it and reduce the number of rings. So that’s it, if I don’t recognise the number I’m not speaking to you. Line drawn and they better be respecting that line or I may just have to be a little less than pleasant.
