"If a telemarketer calls, give the phone to your 3 year old and tell her it's Santa!"
It's the usual quiet Sunday morning, and as I struggled with what to write about, I glanced down to see the cover of "The Week" with a shot of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. It's hard to type when your eyes are rolling. Once again, we have an election year where we're going to be voting on which candidate is the lesser of the two evils, as opposed to which one we'd be proud to call President. However, that's not where I'm going this morning.
I want to talk about a service I found to cut down on the annoying telemarketing calls that have already started coming in. It's an election year and if you live in the United States you'll soon be receiving pre-recorded calls from the celebrity world to endorse one candidate or the other. Well, we're doing our best to keep them out of our home this year.
I love it! The video below says it all. Click Nomorobo above to visit their website.
Nomorobo took care of the calls from Comcast, and with the Verizon landline in my office I've set it up through their system to block calls with no caller ID. With my iPhone, I'm just avoiding calls I don't know and then blocking the number in the "details" screen, but I'm considering Nomorobo's subscription plan.
It's just a short post this morning as I go into my public service mode - we all work hard. I don't know about your lifestyle, but my home is my castle and annoying telemarketers don't have the right to wander through the door, or the phone lines!
Wishing everybody an outstanding Sunday filled with time with family and friends, peace and minimal interruptions by companies on your phone lines! Go for those eleven second hugs and ignore work if you can - it'll all be there tomorrow morning.
Happy Sunday everybody!
"If you answer the phone with "Hello, you're on the air!" most telemarketers will hang up."
