Telephone Tuesday, ERRRRRRRRR

Tuesday, December 03, 2019

Yes, I got the first call at 7:45 informing me that my computer something is expiring today, and I need to pay $299,95 by the end of the day or I won't be covered, for what I have no idea. Anyway I told them to "Get Lost", and over the next 20 minutes I received 3 calls from them and now about every half hour they call again. Guess I pissed them off. I do not have Caller ID, and our home phone is our farm phone, so I do need to answer it. So guess, I will be busy hanging up on people today. I wish they could do something about all these annoying calls, and these people get a real job. I have yet to buy anything over one of these calls, and I really do not believe that I will ever fork over, $299.95, for something that I don'[t know what it is, and the guy, "David" or "Michael" that has such a Middle eastern accent that you can't hardly understand them. I did ask what it was I was suppose to buy, and just got the run around, and then he wanted me to log on so he could get in my computer, I DON'T THINK SO. end of story. I have my own guy that takes care of all my protection and such.

WAs thinking of going to town this morning, getting low on cat and dog food, but then hubby said if I would wait until tomorrow that he would take me. Today, he is moving some hay around so it won't get snowed in if me get a blizzard and we need it. And I was really surprised that he is actually doing it without my help .lol It is suppose to warm up a bit, and he wants to move it while it is still froze, and I am hoping it warms up enough that he can get out there and knock some of those frozen ruts down so a person can walk out there with out fear of breaking a leg. That would not be good.

My Missions of the day are:
1. Get all the bedding washed
2. Get some vacuuming done
3. Get in a walk.

Well, that is it for me today, so you all take care and have a GET day. :Linda .

    Good thing you didn't agree to anything. They call here too but we have an answering machine and don't answer the phone. Remember Microsoft or your computer brand will not call you on the phone. Just ask your IT guy. I wish there was some way to just get rid of those calls.

    Take care and I hear we are suppose to get some snow too, but not until the weekend. Oh yea. Spring will be here soon enough.

    Worked out with my trainer today, did grocery shopping, stopped in at a goodwill, planted beets and parsley.
    Burned yard trimmings. Oh and the closing on our house in NYS closed this morning. So glad it is sold and I am not paying that mortgage, taxes, insurance etc. any more.

    Definitely scammers. Hang up as fast as you can. They don't pay any attention to the National Do Not Call list, either.

    You did good, Linda... that scam is notorious and many people have fallen for it. In fact there was a TV documentary warning all about it. emoticon emoticon

    Good for you for knowing a scam when you hear one. I see so many news stories about older Americans getting tricked into clicking on a link or paying money and it's just a scam. I've been getting text messages that I've won $1000 gift card at Walmart because my receipt number was chosen - I haven't even BEEN to Walmart in months so that's impossible.

    I hate those phone calls. I hope that they stop for you today and that you can enjoy the rest of your afternoon.

    My sister's strategy is to waste their time, keep them on the phone without telling them, just keep asking why and to verify who they are, ask for employee ID number, supervisor's name, a big sob story about how hard it is for her as a handicapped person to get to the phone, etc etc. They get tired and hang up on her instead of the other way around. I'm having lunch at my desk, egg salad and tomato soup without crackers from the cafeteria. I figure the egg salad is a better choice than grilled cheese. Anyway I'm having to chew carefully till I can get in to the dentist tomorrow. I hope it'll be a simple job of re-cementing the crown, fingers crossed.
