Just some random thoughts today

I was trying to be polite but some telemarketer called me last night despite being on the national “Do Not Call List” and I lost my temper.

After hitting the splat/star or “*” four or five times, most computers will automatically take you off their list and never bother you again.  This is really important to do around election time since there’s some weasel clause in the Do Not Call List that lets political candidates whore you to death with every proposition known to man.

Anyway, after hitting * * * *, instead of the usual “We will take you off our list,” I got a real person who just wouldn’t take no for an answer an eventually had to tell him to stick it where the sun don’t shine.  Some people are real a55holes.  I’m on the DO NOT CALL LIST! Don’t call me MF.

  1. So if there is a real person talking, I can just hit **** and that should remove me from the database? I want to try this!

  2. @intuitivelyobvious,

    Initially you have to be connected to a computer, i.e. a recording is playing or “no one is on the line” while you say “hello” a couple of times, then press ***** and you get taken off the list.

    If you’re slow on the trigger, you get a person after saying “hello” a few times like I did.
