Yesterday we wanted to know if you’re having luck with the Do-Not-Call list. Here are the results.
50% said yes.
40% said no.
10% of those who responded said they think they’re getting more calls now!
Thanks for taking the survey. Every time we talk about telemarketers, I think back to that classic Seinfeld episode:
By the way, it was on this day n 1876 that Alexander Graham Bell made the first phone call to his assistant, saying, “Mr. Watson, come here. I’d like to sell you some aluminum siding. Oh, you’re eating dinner? Well, this won’t take a moment…” or something like that
Did you know that the way you handle the telephone is a direct line to your personality? “The posture of your body when you’re chatting on the phone provides a telling glimpse into your dominating traits,” says sociologist Dean Montgomery. Check out the descriptions below and choose the one that most resembles your demeanor when you’re gabbing on the phone.
- Relaxed — You give the impression that you don’t have a care in the world and that’s not far from the truth. When others are overwhelmed, you have a knack of landing on your feet in the midst of chaos. No problem is too tough for you to find a solution, and you are the rock that your loved ones and pals depend upon.
- Cradler — You’re a sweet natured nurturer who loves nothing better than showering the ones you love with affection. Since childhood, your fondest dream was to have a home and family — a desire that you have achieved in splendid style. Your little tribe is the center of your world, and your home is the hub for your larger circle of friends.
- Energized — You have an endless supply of vitality, and your near and dear know you are always up for an adventure. You’re endlessly curious about others, and your charming interest has led to a collection of friends from all walks of life. Your bubbly insistence on grabbing all the gusto life has to offer makes you the leader of the pack.
- Focused — You’re a reserved person who prides yourself on being on top of things, and your brilliant organizational skills usually assure that you’re in total command. But you do have the charming ability to reverse yourself when it comes to personal relationships — you’re a hopeless romantic who lets your emotional hair down with the ones you love.
I don’t see the “driver” anywhere on that list. Hands Free anyone?
