  • Deceptive Soliciation

    As if the sales calls were not bothersome enough, I've been getting a NEW round (new to me) of phone solicitation that is outright deceptive from "hello"!

    The phone rings, I answer, and the voice (either live or recorded) says "Thank you for calling...."

    I DIDN'T CALL!!!!! If it's a recorded message, there's an option to "press 4" (or whatever number) to speak to an operator, so I usually do that, and just say firmly and immediately "REMOVE ME FROM YOUR LIST".

    Then there's the email that starts off "Thank you for subscribing - to confirm you want to join, please click ---- " I just click delete.

    WHY on earth would ANYBODY buy ANYTHING from an outfit who LIES to you on their very first contact!

    But, then again, there's a sucker born every minute.....

        The resident spelling/grammar Nazi is on a roll. We'll know that he's gone around the bend the moment he starts mixing up "your" with "you're" (he even used to correct Miss Crabapple our 3rd grade teacher on that one).

        I'm always still in trouble again

              I once complained I had no shoes, then I met a man who couldn't spell.

                    I once complained I had no shoes, then I met a man who couldn't smell. He was lucky not to be able to because I had no shoes.

                      well actually I was the one who stole your shoes. I use them as WMDs to make other ships surrender their cargo to me.

                        You only say that because you mean it.
