The do not call list doesn't help if the company already
has a relationship with you. By dint of much effort,
we've gotten it whittled down some, but I don't hope
to ever have it go away completely.
The most annoying ones now are the ones that say THIS
IS SUCH AND SUCH COMPANY, THERE IS NO PROBLEM
WITH YOUR CURRENT ACCOUNT" and then go one to try
and talk you into a better rate or whatever AND they
tell you "THIS IS YOUR SECOND AND FINAL NOTICE" well
the first time I heard that (months ago!) I thought yippee
only to discover that EVERY call now is my second and final notice!!
(And btw, sending stuff to answering machine doesn't work,
at least for me, because they hang up and don't leave a msg.!)
