I know this sounds odd, but I cannot stand to have my phone ring more than 3 times, at home or here, especially here. If I get a Telemarketing call I have devised special tortures for the various callers. One in particular is a deaf phone relay caller, a scam from our friends in Nigeria. It entails them using the relay operator, wanting to order a large catering, saying that they will have their "agent" pick it up, they want to add a $1000-$1500.00 tip and want to pay for it NOW, with a credit card, even though the catering they want is weeks away. Restaurants that fall for it are out the tip. I was onto it in about 1 second the first time I got a call, and since this is the family hour, I can't repeat how I handle these frequent calls...suffice to say, I actually look forward to them...makes my day!
