There's no reason to be rude, but I didn't ask them to call either, so I just hang up right away.

I got a call before and was just about to hang up when I realised it was an Indian woman from the shop that I've ordered Kathryn a new school uniform from, she rang to say it would be in on Monday. OOPS!

I know Kaz, those Dot not Feather Indians, they all sound alike.;-)

I do not answer the phone when I am late with my credit card. The call comes from India and I get a lecture about my responsibilities. I drew up a scenario of an insane U.S. President, who wants to fight China and India because of this. (Oh, I am sorry Senator McCain. Did I give your plans away)?

Yes, One World Government is on its way LOL!

A lecture? OMG Mike just hang up!!!

You made my point earlier,Kazzzz - thanks. What I resent are the aggressive & intrusive marketing policies of those who own call-centres,which is why workable blocking mechanisms are sensible.
Mike, I'm sure you can appreciate this too.

It should be explained to those who haven't been on "Blathering On" for long, that TusconMike was making a subtle sarcastic JOKE right there! He would never use those terms to describe people!

No offence meant to Mike! I am merely stating my own position vis-a-vis inappropriate call-centre intrusion. Some comments related to that theme.

None taken, Linda. Now you know why I am glad I work in a place where they are calling ME. The people who call need my help. It is a lot more rewarding and I speak with some really nice folks.

I had one Canadian woman try and pick me up. Another knew someone I know. (He is her Provincial rep in Ontario. I know him from Toastmasters).

So I have great days. Thank goodness I am not interrupting folks' dinner.

Yes, indeed, Mike: your work shows the most positive side of call-centre activity. Of COURSE I'm grateful when home appliances break down & I can call out help via someone helpful like you, or phone for information, or indeed to order & pay for items myself.So long may that continue!
Linda

Just remembered the following recent newspaper item:Someone staffing the DYSON (vacuum-cleaner) call-centre was called & told that the caller's machine was full of soil & mud, which couldn't be released. He'd been using it to mow his lawn as he liked the striped effect it gave!
