Okay, I know a lot of people make their living by doing telemarketing. Even my own son did it for a while (although he absolutely hated it). It’s an honest living, as long as they aren’t doing telemarketing for a scam. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t annoy me, though. My phone number has always been unlisted and unpublished. I put all my phones on the no-call list, including my cell, to no avail. I finally just got rid of my home phone, because they were driving me crazy.
So you can imagine my amusement when I ran across a recording wherein someone probably scared some poor “you have just qualified for a free….” telemarketer out of the industry forever. I have to laugh every time I hear it.
