A Step Toooooo Far
BUT.... now... things have gone way too far. On both our business and private lines (they're not discerning) I've been getting calls asking me if I'm interested in a mortgage. Nothing wrong with that, you might be thinking. I agree, if the voice on the end of the phone belongs to a real live person. Oh no, the voice belongs to a recording. OMG has the world gone mad? I can't believe anyone would a) listen to the whole message, b) believe they're talking to a human being, or c) be interested in buying from a recording.
The only thing in it's favour, is that I can swear loud and long down the phone when I get the call - and I get them a couple of times a week - which is somewhat satisfying.
Anyone else been getting these calls? And your response?
I generally hang up before five words have been spoken. I wonder if they can even tell, if it even matters... But I feel very good about it.
Really annoying and pretty much a guarantee I'll never use those companies.
And they always call at the worst possible time. grrr...
And of course it would wake her and I'd have to start the process all over again.
I tell you, I don't usually swear at people, but....
Sorry to steal your boyfriend, but he's mine now
I always hang up before they start to even talk. I can always tell it's a telemarketer because I have to say hello twice.
P.S. Noticed you're from NZ. We went there on our honeymoon and loved it!
