Sleezy Like Sunday Morning
"Congratulations! You have won an all-expense
paid trip to..."
8:22 AM - ON A SUNDAY!!!
Ya know, I distinctly recall putting my name and
number on a DO NOT CALL list.
This has given credence to my belief that whoever is
behind this No-Contact list is a diabolical genius.
I swear that whoever this mastermind is, he has taken
all the names of people who do not want this kind of
invasion and sold the damned list to telemarketers.
I realize that telephone sales generate millions of
dollars and companies that use such tactics provide
thousands of jobs. Everyone needs a job - of that there
is no question.
BUT - do they have to call before noon on weekends -
or any day for that matter?
Also, does anyone really fall for that 'won a free trip to...'
crap? If it sounds too good to be true, then 9 times out
of 10 it is. Besides, I don't enter contests - it gets your
name on CONTACT LISTS!
Sensing a pattern here?
