I hate telemarketers. I really need to get caller ID or something, not that caller ID even really helps anymore with that. I get called at least once a day, every day, by some telemarketing people, and every time I hang up feeling terrible. I’m rude to try and protect my own privacy, but I always feel bad because I know the voice on the other side is just another person trying to earn a living. And then I feel even worse because I don’t think random people should be able to call me every day and make me feel like a bad person! I’ve stopped giving out my phone number for any reason but clearly it’s already circulating, so what am I going to do? I can tell people to take me off their call lists, but I already feel so awful I haven’t done that yet, and anyway I’m not sure how much it will help. *sigh*
