I'm sick of telemarketers!

I really hate telemarketer calls. They're annoying. Yesterday I placed a new message on my phone's answering machine. It says, "Hello, we're not home. If this is someone we know, or someone we might want to know, please leave a message and we'll get right back to you. If this is about the Susanville Bluegrass Festival, please leave a message and we'll get right back to you. If this is a telemarketer, please die a slow and agonizing death where your eyes pop out of your head and the blood drains from your body. Thanks...have a nice day!"

I can hardly wait for the first telemarketer to call.


  1. Thanks for stopping by Gene,adding your blog to my list with links.

  2. I did something like that, too! It was several years ago, and I've since changed it. Maybe it's time to rethink it!
    Thanks, Gene, for reminding me that certain folks just love to yank my chain. I just resent it that he is so harsh with Sarge. I know Sarge can handle his own battles and I should butt out. Matt's worst attack came at the beginning of Sarge's fight w/cancer. He posted a real nasty post about me, too. Oh well...

  3. The ONLY reason he posts that drivel is to get a rise out of someone. There's a lot of people like that. Whenever you see something he posts, just think of it as Carlie Brown's teacher talking: "Wah Wah Wah Wah Wah."

  4. I think Yogchick is a telemarkter

  5. my grampa had a stuffed duck that quacked "Aflac" over and over....LOUDLY.

    When a telemarketer called...he would put the duck up to the phone until they hung up.
