Telephone Tip

Frugal

I don’t know WHAT it is with my telephone number, but I get about 12 or more telemarketing calls A DAY. I screen everything through my answering machine so I don’t have to deal with them. However, they are pretty nasty in that they wait for the answering machine message to finish, then they hang up. Sometimes they don’t hang up correctly, and I get that recording from the phone company “If you’d like to make a call, please hang up and try again” and it beeps and beeps. Quite loudly. I’m ranting, I know, but I am so sick and tired of it!! GRRR. I did register with the National No Call Registry, but I don’t know that it did much. I heard that the list expires after a few years! There’s got to be a better National No Call Registry system, somewhere.

Somebody gave me a link to a Reverse Cell Phone Lookup. Heh heh. What an interesting and useful little tool this can be! It’s free to use. I like the zip code list, too, because I am always wondering what state I’m calling for some of those online orders I make. <
