RE: the 2018 trivial drivel thread
.
Some telemarketers are damn PIA pushy they never take no for an answer!

Last night this guy calls looking for a sizeable donation for his organization,
I tell him I'm sorry right now I won't be able to make any contribution.

He then cuts his donation request in half, and says when can I send that?
I again said sorry, I can't send anything, so then he says . . .

and so I just hung up on him! Flamethower

(I'm on the "Do No Call List", But .....)

There is no stopping them, the do not call list doesn't work. Now they have figured out how to take someone else's phone number with the same area code as yours so it looks like they're calling from that number and you're more likely to answer the call.

I once got a phone call from my own cell number. Not kidding. The very same thing happened to someone I know.

I screen calls on all my phones. They all go to voice mail unless it's someone in my contacts or someone I know on my house phone.

Yep, sometimes they use your own number so it looks like you're calling yourself. I've had it happen several times. I've also got several calls from local numbers and when I answer it's a recording that I won a free vacation or some shit, I guess they figure there will be one idiot out of a hundred that will stay on the line. Then when you call the number back it's some local person's phone number that they stole. It was weird as shit when it first started happening, but now I know they have some kind of app that allows them to use anyone's phone number.

It's annoying as shit because I can't just let my business phone go to voice mail, I have to answer every call in case it's a customer. I get about twenty robo spoof calls a day.

When it happened to me, I know I looked like a dufus. Open mouth and everything.

My husband didn't believe me when I told him about it until it happened to him.

So Ronaldo is moving from Real Madrid to Juventus (Jew-vent-us).

Must’ve worn out his welcome in Espana and moving on to the Italian ladies.

Personally, I like the Spanish gals more than the Italians (except for the dime pieces from Jersey).

You couldn't get a clue during the clue mating season in a field full of horny clues if you smeared your body with clue musk and did the clue mating dance.

I danced my ass off.

Can you tell me why the State Police would advertise they are conducting DUI checkpoints & where they are conducting them? Not the dumbest bullshit ever but ranks up there. Do I have to do everything? Jesus.

That's more for the sober driver's, to let them know there will be a traffic holdup at those checkpoints, so use alternate routes to get to work and or where ever.

As for the DUI driver's, they won't remember where the checkpoints are, they'll just think it's traffic. Until caught! hah

Maggot, I just saw an outdoor movie screen for sale and it made me think of you. Why? Are you showing movies in your backyard? Were you looking for a screen at one time?

I bought one and just roll it up and keep it there with velcro. It works good and i can swim around and watch it at night.

Is that so you can find the vomit on the lawn and pool after the party ends?
