From the beginning I didn't believe the "do not call" list would work. The
government doesn't do many things right the first time and sometimes never.
I have an unlisted number and block anyone who blocks their number. I don't
ever register for a chance to win a free anything. Doing so is just saying
yes to more junk snale mail and spam. I don't give my phone number out to
*anyone* other than family, friends, and health care providers. Not even my
credit union or mortgage company has my home number. If I absolutely have
to give a phone number to someone I'm not comfortable giving it to then
I'll give me wireless number. I never get telemarketing calls on either
There's at least one where I live. At least I think it's a telemarketing
firm. I sure wouldn't want to do it, but I think the pay is a lot better
than you can make at Burger Tyrant (when it's not on commission anyway).
Plus you get to sit in a cubicle instead of standing over a stove, so for
a lot people, it's like the promised land. The downside is people hate
you and it wears on your soul.
