You can have fun by harassing back at junk phone calls. Of course, the catch is that you have to answer the call instead of just ignoring in. But as soon as you are certain there is a live person on the line, hit them with something like "Where's my pizza?" -- or something equally strange off the wall. You will take control of them! They are so programmed to stick to their "line of talk" that they will babble and qawk; it is their purpose to keep you talking to them on the phone to try to phish for information. Finally, say something like, "I'm canceling my order! I'm never buying pizza from you again!" They could hang up first. Then you hang up! Will this keep the creeps from calling you again? The final statistics are not yet in, but if you have had success with this practice, let WCU know! Thanks.

Good grief! Mom called Huckabee to sign the Obama care petition, because she wants truth and reality in our government, but she refused to make a donation, less than 5 minutes later Huckabee people called her to try to squeeze her for a donation!
What scumbums! And she even liked Huckabee.
Look if we can live on $24,000 per year, and pay 30% income tax, 10% sales tax, 7% fuel tax, franchise fees, licensing fees, property taxes etc. --- they can too!
They're not underpaid just because they overspend!
2:20 PM this time. Sometimes these goons hit at 7:30 or 8:00 PM. Obviously, they are still fishing to find out when someone will be home. Since these calls began to escalate, I have said thanks to whoever it was who invented Caller ID. Of course, I still have to sit and wait until the call is finished. But to know that I am foiling them and whatever their game is makes me very, very happy.
