Out of Patience with These Phone Calls

Today must be let's telephonically harass seniors day.

 

No, I'm not interested in selling my home.

No, I don't want a home improvement loan.

Nor a reverse mortgage either.

No, I'm not curious about an IRA - I don't have one with your bank.

 

No, I'm not donating to a police defense fund -- are you kidding me?!

No, I don't want to review health insurance with an unsolicited medicare rep.

No, not the first time, the 3rd time, or the 5th.  Stop calling me.

 

No, this isn't Dean, Deanne, Debbie or Delilah.

 

No, I don't need a new roof -- I'm on the ground floor of a 3 story condo.

No, don't need a sky light. Same reason.

 

Yes I want my groceries. No you can't see my building from the parking lot.

No don't cancel the order, just follow my **bleep** detailed directions.

 

It's possible I'm just in a lousy, junk-call-attraction mood today.

😖🙄👹🙄

I need another beer.

I have a cell phone. I never answer any call if I don't recognize the caller. If they want, they can leave a message. When I had a landline, I had caller ID. I never answered a call if I didn't recognize the caller. They also could leave a message. 

 

It's your phone you pay for, for your convenience. You are not required to answer it just because it rings.

@LindaM972151 I do the same except when I was still working (now retired) and job hunting. Some local companies call from out of town and they do not like voicemail = move on to next candidate.

Normally @LindaM972151 I do the same as you. Don't know what possessed me to answer all those calls. Perhaps I was just in the mood to yell Stop Calling Me at them all. 🤣 Actually, I was waiting for a delivery and have learned that not all delivery people have a local number anymore, and almost everyone gets lost trying to find my place. Delivery finally arrived at 7:45 pm!

@DeahWA , You said a mouth full!  They always have an uncanny ability to know when you are eating , or your phone is misplaced, or not near you, and you race like a loon looking for it.  Only to discovery that it's spam.   MaiTai sounds good.  Christine
