Are Telemarketers Driving You Crazy

Jun 12, 2008
Have you recently been plagued by telemarketers pestering you at all hours of the day and night? Well, if you have been you are definitely not alone. These sales people have become a big thorn in the sides of a lot of people because they call us at home, uninvited, many times by folks that we can not even understand, about some product or sales package that we have never heard of, and usually are not remotely interested in.

Some of the items that telemarketers like to try and sell us are things like cruise ship vacations, special telephone packages, insurance of some kind, or any number of other things. Where do all these people get our phone numbers when we had them unlisted specifically for this reason when we had our phone installed?

For the most of us it is not because we are rude people, but rather that we are busy people. It is difficult to sit down to dinner or to relax when the phone is ringing off the hook. It can be distracting and annoying enough sometimes when it our friends or relatives that we know we have to talk to even if we are not in the mood, but when it is a complete stranger trying to sell you something two or three times a day it can become very intrusive in your private life.

Even when you put your name on the supposed do not call list, it seems that the calls may quiet down for a few months and then they can start all over again. It is a problem that so many of us are really tired of having to deal with. Getting unsolicited junk mail in our box or receiving spam email is bad enough, but we can delete the emails and throw the junk mail in the trash. If you choose not to answer the phone, you still have to listen to it ring and ring until they give up and go away. We can take the phone off the hook, but then we might run the risk of missing an important call. We should not have to be put in this position.

What is the world coming to when complete strangers are able to call you repeatedly even after you have asked them not to? It is like having that annoying neighbor that comes over that you have to put up with everyday like it or not. Someone really needs to set some new ground rules for telemarketing before they drive us all crazy.
