Do Not Call Registry

So, did you sign up for the Do Not Call Registry?

I did, but like most of America, I wanted to do it on the day it was announced… and couldn’t, because trillions of people were doing the same thing at the same time. According to the FTC, over 12.5 million people have already signed up – and if that’s not a pent-up demand, I don’t know what is.

One of the reasons I signed our number up was because of a local company that has taken to calling us every couple of days, using a recording – my favorite method. Immediately after picking up the phone (if we do so), a gruff, white male voice says, “HELLO. DO NOT HANG UP.” It’s about that time that we hang up.

The sooner we stop getting calls from “Unknown Name” or “000-000-0000”, the better.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
