The one thing I enjoyed about living in the apartment was that I didn’t have to deal with people who were soliciting. Now that I live in a house, solicitors seem to pop up now and again….
“When I was living at home, we had the call-waiting service for the home phone, but then we got rid of it to save money. Since wegot rid of it, we could no longer screen calls to see if it was a telemarketer and had to answer the phone every time. Depending on what I’m doing and how I’m feeling, I’ll either let them say their spiel and say I’m not interested, or say I’m not interested before they could even finish their sentence. Telemarketers must go through quite a few rejections every day, so they must be used to it.
I find telemarketers quite annoying and would never want to be one.
I find door -to- door soliciting just as annoying. No, wait, even more so. About 99.99% of the time they are trying to sell me something I don’t want or ask for donations to a charity. How do I even know they work for that charity? They could easily be pretending to be posing as a representative for that charity and then be off with my money to buy who knows what.”
