What's Your Favorite Color?

Today I have had many telemarketers call, even though I am on the "do not call" list. The most annoying call is from a local Clothing Donate place. They are annoying because they call almost everyday and sometimes more than once a day. Today they called me 4 times. Twice I didn't answer and the other I answered and told them I would call them if I had something to donate. When they called the 4th time I let Jacob answer it and this is what went down:

Jacob: Buddy the Elf, what's your favorite color?
Caller: Is Mrs. Smith there?
Jacob: Buddy the Elf whats your favorite color?
Caller: Is Mrs. Smith there?
Jacob: This is Buddy?
Caller: Is Mrs. Smith there?
Jacob: Mrs. Elf is here
Caller: Can I talk to her?
Jacob: I'm sorry, she's on the crapper right now!
Caller: Ok, I'll call back later

After that conversation, I thought I was going to have to head that way.

Unfortunately, the National Do Not Call list does not apply to Companies that you do business with, charities,debt collectors or survey companies, but if they call you you can ask to be taken off of their companies call list. If they call after that you can report them on National Do Not Call list website for being annoying, even if you aren't on the Do Not Call list. Yous should also report telemarketers because they get fined if they call someone on the list. I sure wish charities couldn't call because I get 4 or 5 calls a week asking me to donate money to either the veterans, state troopers, cancers research, breast cancer research or firefighters. I'm not very nice anymore when they call and I used to work at a call center.
