Just No – Stream of Consciousness Saturday & Just Jot It January # 25

 

The Friday Reminder for #SoCS & #JusJoJan 2020 Daily Prompt – Jan. 25th

***

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “last call.” Talk about the enterprise (sales or service) conducted by the last phone call you received from a business you’re not associated with (i.e. your workplace), or talk about that phone conversation itself. Have fun!

Well, what we have here is a failure to communicate. That’s right – I don’t communicate with outside businesses that call on my phones. They have no business to call me umpteen times a day for no reason that interests me.

We have caller I. D. and if I don’t recognize the number I zap it off as fast as I can. It’s so annoying.

It’s just as bad when I get random text messages on my phone from weird places – like this one –

The messages say they’d like to sell our property, and sometimes they have our address, and sometimes it’s an address we’ve never heard of or lived at before. Then I have to take the time – a whole second maybe to delete the messages, because there’s always more than one.

On the phone ones, I have no idea what they’re selling, and even if I did know, I wouldn’t buy it from some random caller.

Just no – I will not communicate with any of them.

Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️

  1. The text ones started in recent months. I had one that read ‘your package was delivered’ only I wasn’t expecting any orders. A few weeks later one of my friends on Facebook posted a message about this – other people had received the same text. No idea what would have happened if any of us click on the address. Thankful I deleted it which is my new motto for unknown stuff.

    • Thanks, John!
      They’ll try anything to fool people into picking up the phone, won’t they? And, it’s never good. Sometimes if I don’t cut the call off in time it will go to voicemail, so I just delete it, too. 🙂
