Are you inundated with phone calls selling you something – even though your number is listed on the Do Not Call Registry?
Why is it that we have to register a number but the spammers don’t have to check? And why are they given up to 30 days and have to call at least 2 to 3 times before being reported?
Isn’t that like 3 strikes you’re out? Something that didn’t work either I don’t believe. At any rate, I’m so irritated that companies don’t have to research first before dialing. Another thing is those that use an automated system just to see if the call is picked up or not! You answer and no one is there…who invented that anyway? I hope they receive as many of those unwanted, time sucking calls as I do.
I’ve resorted to many things throughout the years to include answering the phone with…
You’ve reached Crochet Memories; thank you for your call. We are having a special today what would you like to order?
You’ve reached the city morgue and barbecue experts. How may I direct your call?
Yes, and why did you call this number that is listed on the Do Not Call Registry?
I’m sorry that person doesn’t live (work) here.
Yes, I am interested in refinancing this house, but how does it work since I only rent? Can I make the owners refi?
Yes I am very interested but can I have your offer for free because I don’t have any money…
Why don’t you take the amount of money you need for this to work and send me the balance?
You’ve reached a number that is no longer connected, if you think you reached this number in error, please hang up and try again.
Press 1 if you’d like to speak with a member of the Mathew’s residence, press 2 if you’d like to speak to Crochet Memories – please don’t hang up, your call is very im-por-tant to us. I’m sorry we did not understand that directive. Good byyyyyeeee
Yes I’m quite familiar with your product. I’m the manager for the Riverside branch and my personal number is on the Do Not Call Registry. You could be reported so please remove that number and I won’t have to report you to your department manager.
And lastly when they can’t speak to me as the person whose name is on the account, I say wait a moment and get back on the phone using a deeper voice. And sometimes I don’t even try to disguise my voice. After all, if they accept payments made by me, then they should be able to talk to me.
