Last night my husband and I were watching a 24 hour news channel. My husband likes to watch this channel for a few minutes before he goes to bed. We saw one of those ticker lines go by that said that 3 women were sexually assaulted in a drug store in our area.
Wanting to know more about the story we went to the channels website but we couldn’t find anything on the story. I thought that was odd … but even odder that three women were assaulted at the same time? Or was it the same day? Or perhaps it was just a total of three women in that particular store? That’s what we wanted to know. I still don’t know the answer.
While I was on the site I saw another news article that caught my eye. It said something about the new no call list that would stop market research and telemarketing companies from calling your home if you got yourself on the list. It said the site was about to be approved.
Hmmm that was another odd one for me because I signed up on the official site about two years ago. What did they mean the site was just being approved? Unless this is a new site their reporters are way behind in the news!
Once I signed onto that no call list we almost stopped getting calls from telemarketers and market research companies. Yes we still get a few calls here and there, but we went from getting five or so calls a week to maybe one every two or three weeks. A dramatic improvement.
The list I’m talking about is in Canada. If i find a link for it I’ll list it so you can sign up. If you aren’t in Canada you might want to see if something like that is available in your area. I know the people that call are just doing their job but it’s always dinner time or when I’m busy doing something else. I just don’t like the calls and I’m so glad to have found a way to cut them down substantially.
