Sales people bug me. Literally they bug me constantly. Every single day I get at LEAST one, usually several, calls from automated systems trying to sell me this or that thing that I don’t need or can’t afford.
What’s really bad is when those automated calls happen in the predawn hours. I can’t just ignore the phone because there’s a chance at those hours that it could be important.
So, I end up dragging myself out of a comfortable sleep only to hear a robot voice tell me that I’ve been pre-selected for a special discount offer on a therapeutic massage if only I’ll run right out and sign up for a ten year membership (payable in advance) to Joe’s Gym or somesuch.
Fortunately however I’ve got a plan that should sharply reduce the number of such calls that I get.
