A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have. -Thomas Jefferson
I'll have to try that one.
Love it. It's up there with Jerry Seinfeld asking the telemarketer his home number so he can call him during dinner.
Years ago, when Mr. AOW had brain surgery, I used to say, "This is a bad time for a call. My husband just had surgery for a brain tumor."I didn't get telemarketing calls for years after that.
Another one that works: "This is a bad time. There's been a death in the household."
I cheat. I use caller ID. If someone really needs me, they can leave a message and if it's legit, I will go ahead and pick up. If they say nothing and hang up...well, I don't want to talk to them either.
Alligator,Caller ID is a Godsend.My comments above related to the days before caller ID.
Tom Mabe is a genius when it comes to messing with people over the phone.
I use caller ID all the time. If you call me around dinner time, you had better be friend or family!
