I am still sizzlingin anger. I used to be a nice sucker, but now I've really had it. I always thought that telemarketers were people too. I figured they bleed just like we do, ya know? So I always ran, often groggy from being woken up, or disturbed while I was doing something important, to answer the dumb calls. Caller ID helped limit them, cause I can check the number and just not answer, but often they get by.
Can you believe that today, after telling the marketer in a rather loud voice to stop bothering me, and then hanging up, this person actually called me back! I hung up, they called back. This went on for the next five minutes. Finally I told them that this was harassment. They then had the nerve to ask why I bothered to have a telephone if I didn't want calls ("that would help me lower my phone bill.") The absolute nerve. I explained that the purpose of my phone line was none of their business.
Then I actually had to leave my receiver off the hook, and today of all days, while Dad is at the hospital having tests done.
I called our phone carrier and complained about it, but they said that it wasn't a call from them, and they could do nothing about it. Then the representative from our company had the gall to ask me if I wouldn 't like to hear about their "great new promotional offers"?!!!! Aargh. Yup, there's one born every minute.
I'm a spiritual person having a physical experience who enjoys being a witness to the everyday miracles of life. A metaphysical healer who's also a housewife and a harpist, and caregiver to an elderly relative. Mother of two wonderful grown children; wife to a wonderful man. I also like to write, read, tend a prolific herb garden, and dream of the day there is a cure for MS. I am open minded, and a revolutionary for old fashioned values. Essentially, I am an enigma...
