It seems like almost every day lately my phone rings at least twice if not ten times with 1 800 numbers and marketers trying to sell me things. They’re even starting to call my cellphone. I’m getting very tired of all of the calls.
Luckily I have call display so when I see the same numbers come up time and time again I just don’t answer it – or if I see a 1-800 type number or a number that looks odd like 1234567889 I don’t answer. I have an answering service on my phone so if a real company or person I’m sure they’d leave a message – right?
The only time this strategy kind of bit me in the butt lately was when I was actually waiting on a call for a life insurance rate and they called with a 1-800 number that I didn’t recognize and didn’t leave a message until their third call!
Do you get a lot of spammy calls on your phone or cell phone? I’m on our national do not call list but it doesn’t cover all kinds of calls – like newspaper companies or charities or companies that you’ve previously had dealings with, and also some of the calls come in from other countries so the DNC list can’t do a darn thing about that!
