Ask not for whom the phone rings
The hiatus in telephone solicitation was short lived. I'm just one of the luckiest people on the face of the earth -- I somehow manage to win two or three cruises a week! That was one of the calls I've had the past few days. The other was from the company that sells fancy beds to you in your home (I won't name them).
The volume is comparatively sparse, but it's still annoying. And the bed people called Sunday afternoon when I was home from church but sleepy and I almost picked it up without checking caller ID.
Each call is an invasion of privacy and that's what I resent. Even not answering the phone, I'm still bothered by it. They're reaching into my home without my consent.
There oughta be a law.
