They weren't calling for me but for whoever used to have our phone number before we moved here. Most of those calls have stopped for the most part. Seems to only really occur at the first of year and around tax time.

Am I not allowed to say no without being treated rudely? This happened once before so I phoned the girl back and gave her crap for being so rude to me. I asked her if it was okay for me to say no in my own home! I didn't ask her to phone me.

My husband likes to tell the person to hang on and then see how long they will stay on the line for. One guy held on for 6 minutes! I can't stand phone solicitors but also don't have the guts to do something like that. I actually feel bad for the guy on the other end of the line!

I guess I am too soft.

I get average of 5 calls a day from people wanting money, clothes, or lately a whole slew of banks keep calling.

Oh yes, the other thing that makes me SO MAD is when the bank asks for my husband. I say no, can I help you, I am his wife. They say no they have to talk to him. When I tell them a good time to call, by their request (he works a lot of hours so isn't here a lot) they never do call at the times I tell them. They keep calling at the same time every other day and refuse to talk to me. When they say "we will call back" I am starting to say "no you WON'T!" I know that doesn't do anything but it makes me feel better.

You can go to this web site called DO NOT CALL...and follow instruction .
