I just posted this on my Facebook page.
Something I just read prompted me to post the following:
If you have not registered your phones with the “Do Not Call” list, do so. It will save you a lot of grief.
Even you are on the “Do Not Call” list, you are still susceptible to calls from political groups and charities (even if the charity is questionable).
If you are on the “Do Not Call” list and you are getting calls about lowering your interest rates, that is not a violation. There is a loop hole in the “Do Not Call” regulations that allows such phone calls if you had a credit card at one time.
My solution is to utilize a version of something we did with the phone in the old Bartlett High School Band Room (’66 – ’68), “East Side Mortuary. Is this a pickup or delivery?”
I don’t know how the people how the people who call because they have discovered there is a virus in my operating system get my number (blocking the number doesn’t help because they are spoofing the number that shows on the Caller ID) so I offer the suggest that I don’t have any windows in my office but I do sit by the door.
I know that this isn’t going to stop the phone calls but at least I have a little fun.
