My phone here was hooked up three weeks ago. Just this weekend, I have received two telemarketers' calls, one on Saturday at 5 pm, and one today at 8:15 pm. I find it amazing that a) it takes less than three weeks to show up on telemarketer lists, and b) they are calling on weekends, holidays, and well after the dinner hour. I am quite sure they were meant for me, because both of them asked for me by my last name. (One of them got my sex wrong, asking for Mrs. _______, but they knew who was living here.)
Tomorrow, I add my name to the Do Not Call registry. I am not interested in trips to Las Vegas, and I certainly am not going to divulge any information about my credit card usage. My only issue now is the online purchases I have made recently; although none of them have my new phone number, about 10 of them have my address, so I may have to deal with junk mail for some time to come.
