How do I stop annoying phone calls?
Since Friday I have received numerous phone calls from a company that apparently wants to list the Lab I work for in their free directory. The first three times the woman called I explained that she would have to call our main office, which she refused to do. The next few calls I completely ignored. When the calls didn't stop I politely asked her to stop calling. She called a few more times and again I ignored it. This is difficult & annoying. I work in 1 room that is my office/blood drawing room. I have to leave the ringer on as I do receive necessary calls throughout the day, but with the frequency of these phone calls I am being driven to distraction!
Yesterday & today have also been filled with calls. I answered the 1st 2 times each day hoping to put an end to this madness. They are apparently playing a new game now. When I answer the phone there is no one there...well, they are there...I can hear them breathe, but they do not speak. When I tried calling the displayed number I get a recording saying that the number is a disconnected number. DH looked up the number and the company is from India, using a USA number to hide behind. I called the Do No Call registry and registered my number, but it takes up to 30 days to go into effect. I cannot take 30 more days of this!
Thoughts & suggestions PLEASE!
*57 and call verizon and report a harassing call
Lori: what a bunch of pains in the arses! I would just start talkin jibberish, or, get a talking doll and pull the string so that is what they hear.. or if you knows its them, pickup the call then hang right up on them! hehehhe.. OR, as a last resort (or first..!) pretend u cant hear them.. just keep asking "what what, i cant hear you.. what, sorry bad connection" good luck! i HATE annoying phone calls..thank god I have caller id!!
Tell her you are on the do not call list and if she calls again you will file a complaint against her with the government.
Lori - hopefully this will provide some comfort ....
Ryan, I could really use some Seinfeld right now, BUT there are no speakers on my computer here...Aaagghh
get a good old fashioned whistle and blow loud and for as long as your lungs will permit every single time they call
They called one more time and this time a guy actually introduced himself. The second he started speaking I let him have it. The calls stopped...for now anyway!
I tell people that my phone line is monitored by the FBI and your call is recorded
Stop giving your phone number out when you're drinking! ha! LOL.....kidding!
They called 1 more time yesterday, but today there have been no calls...yeah!
You guys are too funny!
