Seems there's no way to make this irritation go away, which makes it a doubly annoying. Telemarketers. Need I say more? I understand and respect that they're doing their job, but my question is this: why, why, why must the calls come at dinner time? I'm expecting friends to phone in the early evening, or my mom, so I can't ignore the ringing. It feels like I spent too much time last nite feeling both aggravated about the telemarketers and disappointed the calls weren't the ones I was expecting! Silly, I know, but I just want some peace & privacy in that way at home!!! Ahhh, much better!
