Has this ever happend to you?
You are watching your favorite sports team or TV show, or banging out new brillaint posts on your blog, and the phone rings. Hoping that its your loved one, you eagerly answer. "Hello?"
This is how it usually happens to me...."Hello, Mr. Okefay (My name is O'Keefe") we are calling from..." and they go into some lie that they are giving people in my area special rates, or some gal named Mary is calling from their San Diego office, when clearly she is from India, and she is not named Mary.This despite the fact that I am on the do not call list. And is there anything more annoying than those computer calls that hang up on us? No doubt this is some way to confirm our number as live.
