Bleeping telemarketers are getting sneakier I'm on the do not call list, but I got an interesting, if very aggrivating, call yesterday. Just so you know, I'm a male with a higher-than average voice, so I often get mistaken for a woman over the phone. I live alone in an apartment, I don't have a car, and I've never had any credit cards, which means mortgage and debt-relief companies have no reason to bother me. Phone rings - "Hello?" - "Can I speak to the lady of the house?" - (Annoyed) "Do you know what number you've called?" - "We're dialing all sorts of combinations of numbers, plus charities are exempt from the do-not-call restrictions." - (Deep breath, sigh.) "Wonderful. Am I talking to a computer or an actual human being?" - (Laughs.) "Do I really sound that bad? Well, believe it or not, you've been talking to a real person the whole time." (The word "whole" was emphasized.) "Can I ask you a few questions about the excessive adult content of today's TV shows?" - "Negative." (I was still suspiscious that I was talking to a machine.) - "Good." (Suspicion confirmed.) " What do you ...." click At that point I hung up. I probably should have stayed on the line so I could complain to the people running the damned thing, but I was too pissed to think of it at the time. Anyone else gotten a call like this?
