  1. In particular, it’s the telephone calls from “polls,” fake charities. BUT MOST OF ALL IT’S THE RECORDED MESSAGES WHERE THEY TELL YOU TO WAIT FOR A REAL PERSON. Good lord, does anyone really do that? Hold for a real person because a recording told them to?

    Remember junk mail? Now it’s spam in email and worst of all? It’s those phone calls from fake charities, surveys that are sales call, scammers, rip-off artists … and so much of it not even human. You get woken up at 7 in the morning by a machine telling you to hold for a real person. Does anyone really hold because a machine tells them to? I hope we aren’t that mindless yet. From the incomparable Beasley Greene … “Hell in a Handset”!
