Don't call me.

I don't like to use the word hate, but I really hate telemarketers. They love to call when the baby is napping which usually wakes her up or right when we sit down to eat dinner. Never once have I ever used a company because they called my house. They're annoying and I don't want anything to do with them. {side note: they do have a tough job so I give them credit & am never rude to them}

My dreams came true in February when I registered our number on the
 DO NOT CALL LIST. All you have to do is click on the link and register your number. Give it 31 days to kick in and you're golden. Did you know that once you are registered and the 31 days have passed that it's illegal for companies to call and bug you? All you have to do if they call is tell them that you're on the do not call list and they will hang up before you can push the off button. If you report a company calling when you're on the DNC list then they get slapped with a not so nice fine.

I breathe a little easier and actually like when my phone rings now because I know it's someone that I actually know and want to talk to. You can also register your cell phone if you have a problem with getting calls on there.

Happy Registering, and you really can call me. Well, as long as you don't try to sell me something or tell me that I must need to re-model something in my house {even though it's brand new.} Smart people.

Thank you for reminding me to do this!!! I am also very tired of the phone calls at dinner time, nap time, or even way early in the morning, AND way late at night! UGH....just registered our numbers :-)
