it's official # annoying call!!

So we have the Do Not Call Registry now, supposedly to keep the damn telemarketers from calling. We're on it. So why did I just get a call from a particularly annoying telemarketing outfit???

There are some big loopholes in the law for certain categories of companies - charities, political groups, etc.

You can also just say, "Please remove me from your calling list" and they have to do it.

So probably some really clever liars can get away with this. It's not like these guys were ever known for their honesty in the first place. Damn.

I wished that worked with the Red Cross. I donated blood a couple of times and then proceeded to get calls non-stop, even on Sunday evenings. I asked them to remove me from the call list, but a week later they were at it again.

Now, I donate blood directly to local hospitals.

very noble of you Salome...that means they are not calling someone else during that time. A gentleman and a scholar!

I used to get this one annoying telemarketing call about home security all the time! I finally got pissed and told him "No! I don't need any security. I have ICBM's in my backyard So, I'm covered"
