My phones been ringing a lot this week. I've lost count of just how many but several a day have been attempts at selling. These often start with the words "This is not a sales call."
Some start with the words that they can see from their records that I have yet to claim for....a variety of things.
The inference is always that there is money waiting for me some where. All I have to do is talk to the nice person to get it!
It's even happening on my mobile now.
The bank insurance thing must be approaching its end surely?
Another one is to ask about the accident I suffered recently. I haven't had an accident.
Another one is offering me an almost free holiday somewhere exotic. No thank you!
There are people wanting to speak to David. These are the hardest to cope with...the news of his death does not seem to put them off at all.
So I have instituted a new policy. I will not answer the phone if there's no number at all. Any "private caller" should be aware of that!
I will not answer phone calls from abroad.
I will not answer the phone if it's got too many zeros at the front.
There is an answer machine attached so anyone desperate to get in touch can do so by leaving a message.
Yours grumpy of Tunbridge Wells.
