CRAP CALLS - I now spend a fair amount of time at home, not just doing nothing but doing loads of different things [loving it!]. Of course, since I’m here we do get phone calls thru the day. I don’t mind, so much, human beings calling - whether fundraising or politicking or whatever. I’m willing and able to be kind to them. BUT I hate those machine people calls = the ones for the back braces, car warranties, health insurance, you name it. [I am on the DoNotCall list]. The ones which try to sound like a human, “Hello this is Jennifer”..pause to allow me to say something, then move right along and try to make me think this is a human. BUT I’m having a great time with my call-blocking phone = I’m sure other manufacturers make them, but the one we have is a Panasonic and when one of those machine calls come in [I answer on speakerphone] I hit the Call Block button and even if they’ve spoofed some innocent Iowa area code and number, they are blocked totally. I’ve noticed in the past few days calls have come in and either died on the vine or show “Call Blocked” on the screen and I punch it off. Not having to receive these calls has been great — I just thought I’d report this small success in fighting the machines.
