I got angry today, after the 7th recorded political phone call from Mitt Romney in just 2 days. I called the campaign and I gave them a piece of my mind. Romney, while the most egregious robocaller, is not the only one.
It’s been disruptive. It’s interrupted me struggling to carry a big heavy box, taking a nap, watching a movie, eating a meal.
I solved the problem. I turned off all the ringers on my phones and put this message on the answering machine:
Due to the high volume of political robocalls, we have had to disconnect our phone system ringer until after the South Carolina primary. You may leave a message at the beep.
If someone really wants to reach me, they can call my mobile number which fortunately the candidates don’t know.
