How Many Times Does It Take?!

The phone rings and it is the same automated voice, “This is your last chance to lower your credit card interest”. Now I have interrupted my day on 10 occasions this week to answer the phone and receive this same message. They call both phone lines…taking turns…GIVE UP!!!!
Finally, I’ve had enough. I’ve tried not answering, answering and hanging up….so I give it a shot…I hang on for a FOR REAL LIVE PERSON! Imagine my shock, when I am directed to one immediately. Person says, “Have you just received a call about your credit card”? DUH!! I almost laugh…too funny…why else would I be on the line! I reply sweetly, “Yes, I did and I would appreciate it if you would take me off your calling list”. The person hangs up on me. Go figure! LOL

Fast forward to the today, well not too fast as I received multiple calls each day. Phone rings…I check caller ID…there it is once again…trying not to laugh I hang on once again, determined to get rid of these aggravating, irritating pests who never give up. Well, I answer and the automated person goes through the same little speech…I hang on for a chance at another FOR REAL LIVE PERSON….I get it. LOL The person says, “Did you receive a call about your last chance to lower your credit card interest”? Very sweetly and sarcastically I say, “Yes, I did and I surely hope it is the very last chance! Please remove me from your list….I don’t need my rate lowered as I don’t owe anything!” This one hung up on me, too. You would think I was calling and bugging them! Am I removed....I doubt that I'm that lucky!

Well, four hours have passed and there are no calls….there is always tomorrow. I think I’ll just go back to letting the answering machine get them when they call again. I’m sure they will….you can’t get these people to stop…they don’t understand the concept of NO.

It sure is a pain.When I get those calls I just tell them am on the no call list. They hang up quickly and they dont call back.
