Every morning around 8 o’clock, my answering machine records the same message from some telemarketing outfit in, I think, Beaverton, Oregon. It begins with the words above, and they’ve called me now for about a year. For awhile, it was a female with a cultivated English accent, now it’s a more “serious” sounding male.
Today I finally decided to listen to the whole thing and, OMG! The dude says it’s in regard to AN URGENT COURT MATTER! Now seriously, wouldn’t you think after a year or so, the trial would have been held and I would have been found guilty in absentia? Sigh…
And what about that worthless “Do Not Call” legislation passed by a worthless Congress many years ago? How come I’m still getting this junk? Also, I realize it probably costs these crooks almost nothing to keep me on that call list but isn’t their persistence amazing? They never, ever give up! And neither will I ever give up ignoring them, but I’ll admit, I’m beginning to wonder a teensy-bit what these %#@&-ers really want!
Here’s my challenge: I refuse to call the number but I would like YOU to do it, ok? Call (800) 295-0851 and report back to me and your fellow readers of this blog. If your experience is amusing, you’ll get to “post” about it on the front page of Bored And Razed!
