On Wednesday it was so bad I had to put my phone on silent at work because it was going off constantly. You never can block them because they use phony numbers ... many times local phone numbers.
They began again at 6:30 yesterday morning. I was mad ... MAD at being bothered SO many times!! Can you feel my frustration? By the time I got to the Pumpkin Patch, I was fuming. I should have just taken a chill pill ... or a bottle of wine.
So there I was, pulling in to the parking lot and my phone rang again before I even got it in park. This time I listened and hit the number 1 to talk to a "representative". The second he answered, I lit into him with both feet. I was sick and tired of getting phone calls and I wanted them to STOP!!! I admit, I said some very bad words and hung up on him. TAKE THAT!!!!!
The Pastor and his wife pulled up next to me. She works the office during the week. I jumped out and slammed the door. I got about ten feet before that lightning bolt struck me. You know what happened. My keys were in the ignition.
I called AAA, trying to remain calm. I got the vacation services line. I'd love to go on vacation, but my keys are locked in my truck. No problem she said as she began the twenty questions game. Uhmmmmm I'm at work, could you just send someone please?
She transferred me to the Road Service line as I bit my tongue. Your name? Your address? Your phone number? Are you safe? Are you alone? Where are you? I'm at Buhach and S P Avenue. Can you spell that please? S P!! Can you spell that please? S P (even louder). I'm on S P Avenue. It didn't compute.
When she again asked if I was safe or if I had medicine in my truck I needed, I said yes to both. I'm about to have a heart attack if you ask me one more question and my medicine is in the truck!! "Oh how fun, you work at a pumpkin patch". PLEASE JUST SEND A TRUCK!!!!
The guy showed up in about ten minutes and unlocked the door. He was a nice guy. I figured I would need to answer 20 more questions, but he only asked for my signature.
The next time I hit number 1 and talk to a salesman, I won't cuss at him, but GUARANTEED I'm going to hang up on him!!! I'm on the National Do Not Call List and I STILL get at least eight calls a day. Will they ever stop????
