From My Corner: RoboCalls
Who besides me is sick of these phone calls? I got so fed up, I started answering my phone with: “Housekeeping!” and apparently that’s not the answer they are listening for and they hang up.
One guy kept calling about my computer (which broke and I could not replace). I answered and played along until he said he needed my account number.
I just said, “Ok.”
He said, “Didn’t work. What’s your system?”
I answered, “Fisher Price!” He said he’d never heard of it, and is probably still trying to find that model. But he never called back! The housekeeping answer has definitely slowed them down, however.
And those calls about my car warranty/repair insurance… I don’t HAVE a car. I don’t OWN a car. So it’s ridiculous to call or send me a letter telling me that insurance will be cancelled soon. They wasted a lot of stamps over the years!
But there’s one number that calls, and I can see ELEVEN calls on my machine from that number. So I call them from my trac phone over and over again. They usually don’t answer. But I guess they got tired of Robo Granny and finally answered. I asked, “Is this housekeeping?”
I have had too much virus seclusion time….
