Don't you just hate those phone calls ... the ones where someone with an Indian accent asks to speak to someone you don't even know?
And when you answer with "Sorry! Wrong number!", they start asking you if they can speak to someone else you don't know or, if you have a PC or laptop.
"No! He's doesn't live here either!" or "I don't have a PC!" doesn't seem to dampen their ardour and they continue to quiz and query.
Those conversations can only end with an annoyed recipient slamming the phone down then having a thirty minute rant about how irritating cold callers are.
And there are days when they come like My. Ford's car parts rolling down the assembly line ... Model T Ford cold calling!
I have had three already this morning!
And the most irritating thing ... the thing that winds me up like a clockwork soldier ... is that I'm pretty damned sure that I signed up to one of those schemes that filters those calls out!
But hey! It's ok!
I can live with the fact this scheme thingy isn't working.
I can ... because it was free!
But ... aaaaarrrrrggggghhhhhh!
Why do they call and call and call?
Why don't they remove you from their database or flag you up as "very annoyed, probably suicidal"?
I know they have a job to do and earn very little doing it ... but it just makes you want to kill when their calls keep on coming.
On a lighter note ... I have lost 23.37 lbs (get it? A LIGHTER note!)
And I haven't been dieting!
Just eating in moderation!
Say "Well done that man!"
Pat's on the back gratefully accepted!
About This Blog
This blog was originally started as a thread on the forum pages of an animal rescue site. Now it's here!
The articles you find in here are purely for entertainment (yours and mine) and (with one or two exceptions) are all tongue-in-cheek chronicles of the World (my bit, anyway) as I see it.
No disrespect is intended towards anyone unless I make a mistake and make it too obvious.
I hope you enjoy my offerings. Feedback and comments of any kind are welcome.
