I don't know about you, but I'm a small business, and I get so many unwanted, disruptive telemarketing calls every day that it really messes with my ability to turn out my work. The State of Mississippi has a new 'No Call' reporting hotline that I'm hoping will eliminate these unwanted, irritating calls.
In the meantime, my apologies, but I've had to stop answering my telephone directly. If you call for me and get my voicemail, please leave a message and I will call you right back. Or email me firstname.lastname@example.org. or email@example.com. I'd really like to talk with you.
Unfortunately, if I answer the junk calls, I just get more junk calls. The only way to currently make them stop is to stop answering the phone. Anyway, I'm hoping this is a temporary situation.
In the meantime, Happy Holidays!
