leave me alone

please leave me alone
is what i want to say when the phone rings
that phone

about 3 years ago
our land line phone developed a buzz on it when you
tried to use it
it seemed to not be the phone but the line

so while calling verizon who maintains the land line in
this area
things seemed to always move slow
guess they werent use to working that hard
since so many people have dropped their land lines

i held on for a long time because it gave a 911 call for help
a location they could find us at

then they started raising the cost
it gradually crept up from 12 bucks a month
they added on this fee and that fee
then next thing you know
its thirty something a month

so when the buzzing started and the higher bill arose
i thought
thats it
im not going to have that guy come out here again and bs
me about mice in the box out by the road

i had a cure a treatment for that
i dropped the land line
took that number and moved it to a cell phone
which we made our new
home phone
rules were
we dont answer it
if its important they leave a message
if the number calls back the same time every day then
dont call them back
now if someone we know calls and we are there and
we see its from them we answer it

when we shop somewhere and they ask for your number
i we give them our new
home number

call that you bozos and robo that number all you want

it did take a while for my wife she to learn not to pick up
that ringing phone
i did enjoy listening to her sometimes
no we arent interested
no we arent interested
no we arent interested
i just hang up the phone

plus now if you answer some of these calls
they just hang up
their computer now manages to get your information since
they now know its a good number

so it seems we get calls every day
its not bill collectors since we pay everything on time
have no credit card debt
and are basically debt free
theres those numbers

i wondered who are those folks
that are so persistent

so i found this website
you can go to it and see who they are
without having to pay for the information

i plugged in the last number
it was the place i had my car oil changed
i usually use my mechanic to do this but i was
out of town and had an hour of down time
so i stopped in
you know one of those places that hustle you when you go in
you need new wipers new tires break job etc

so on the www.800notes.com website there were several entries
theyll bug you to death
they did several days in a row then they gave up
they didnt bother me at all
i didnt answer
they didnt leave a message
no response from me

just leave me alone please
