Don’t call me. I’ll call you.
The only people I avoid are telemarketers, rude telemarketers.
I respect the job of a telemarketer; I was one back in the mid-80s before they were so considered annoying. I don’t mind listening to a telemarketer’s spiel but when I say “no thank you,” I mean no. I’ve even said “No thank you and have a nice day” to a telemarketer only to have them keep on talking and ignore my polite “no.” That’s when I hang up without so much as a “good bye.”
I hate to be rude because rude people seriously annoy me, but when a person can’t respect my “no,” the gloves come off!
