Thread Name: BS: Maddening phone call surveys
Subject: RE: BS: Maddening phone call surveys
Oh the scripts used for the charity calls are designed to tug the heartstrings - what makes me immune is when I learn that it is costing them XXX,XXX amount to contact people to get them to give money to the cause.

The calls almost never come at weekends, so it is usually me who takes them. When my husband had a couple of days off as he was unwell he was disturbed every few hours by the phone ringing - he was puzzled as to who it was and why I had so many phone calls which I picked up and then put down at once - the ones which just go dead. It is probably a good thing that he is not a suspicious man.
