We recently got a home phone and we’re sort of starting to regret it. Apparently our number used to belong to a woman who didn’t tell anyone that she changed her number. So now we’re getting a bunch of confused Spanish callers… sometimes they don’t believe me when I tell them that I don’t understand them because what little I know actually sounds pretty decent. Also, we are being inundated with sales calls and offers for free stuff. We don’t know if they’re just trying to gain our personal info, case our house, or just sell us something.
At first I was sending everything to the answering machine… but they just keep calling until you answer!
I put us on the “do not call” list yesterday… but it takes a month to go into effect! Maybe I just won’t answer the phone for a month.
