Telemarketers


Even with the "Do Not Call List"
it seems the calls keep coming!

They won't take "No" for an answer!

The calls are irrelevant and obnoxious!

Unfortunately, so are the telemarketers.

There must be a reason for that.

  1. You know, this is a sore spot with me (and millions of others). Canada has a "do not call" list. I'm on it, my number is active.

    But it doesn't stop call centers in other countries, it doesn't stop calls from charitable organizations, and it doesn't stop calls from survey companies.

    Bleh!

    1. That is why I did this post. We have it here, in the US, but obviously it does not stop them. I know many others feel this way, too.

  2. Who couldn't relate to this post! Besides the LOL cats which cracked me up, those
    %##**! telemarkets are the bane of my existence. Another week of McGuffy's Great Cat Thursday's ...

  4. We have call display and stick our tongues out when we don't know the numbers and we changed the answering machine to pick up after 5 rings because the robo-calls only ring 3 times.

  5. I so agree with your post. The Do Not Call list is useless.

  8. Maybe if my cats answered the phone they could handle those obnoxious calls. Like above if we don't recognize the number we don't answer and the voice mail doesn't pick up until four rings.

  11. Fantastic sequence on those annoying calls. I am going to try to figure out a way to have the cats answer the calls - not like it would help, and if I see a charge on my card, they will definitely have to reimburse me.

  13. We have Do Not Call here in Australia, but charities are exempt. I just assume everyone else is a scammer and hang up. I never used to be that impolite, but they just annoy me so much. I have to be on call for my parents and son's emergencies, so I don't appreciate annoying calls at all hours. My patience is very thin these days.
    Love your pics though. I think Jigglypuff probably has run up the phone bill in the past, but she's very adept at the Internet now. tee hee.

  14. Having once been a telemarketer, I can certainly sympathize with people who have that job, but I was never obnoxious like some of them are. You do better with friendliness and not being pushy, believe me. It makes sense that cats would be telemarketers...they just don't care who they annoy. LOL! Great pics!
