Wednesday

Terrorized by telemarketers


Ta-rrring!

I totally don't get it. I've installed those tricky spam-call-blockers on all our home phone jacks. But the telephone still rings in the evening, at least a few times each week.

It's totally telling, because no one else ever calls our land line.

OK, Mom does.

But everyone else who knows us automatically dials our cell phones first.

To boot, our cable provider has this handy tool, which puts caller ID names and numbers on the TV screen. And our phones have caller ID features too. So we are pretty clued-in when unidentified callers try to interrupt our family evenings at home.

Generally, we simply ignore these cold calls. Sometimes I feel sort of sorry for telemarketing employees. These folks have to dial countless numbers, only to be received with anything but enthusiasm.

But, occasionally, I have to fight the urge to pick up the phone and offer a comeback, like this one. Maybe I won't, but I heard someone say this. And it seemed sort of fitting.

Seriously, does anyone ever donate, enroll, purchase, or vote the way a random telemarketer suggests?

Tuesday

Stop! Cease and desist. I simply cannot stand it.


Somebody stop me. Maybe it's oversensitivity to insincerity, but this certainly sets my teeth on edge.


Anyone have a similar sentiment?

Monday

Randomly risible


Really, I sometimes wonder if anyone is paying attention. Sometimes, the most random things strike me as downright hilarious. A person simply has to pay attention ... to be amused.

Take this college athletic facility, for example. I noticed this during a recent college tour. It was all I could do to keep a straight face in front of our undergraduate tour guide and a group of fellow parents and prospective students.

First, I mean no disrespect. 

This gymnasium, located at the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater, is dedicated to a well-known and respected wrestling coach and teacher, who served three decades.

Inside the gym is a display of athletic record boards, pictures of All-American athletes, and other sports memorabilia.

Still, look at the sign.

OK, look a little closer.

Family wrestling? Really?

I don't know about your family, but I think ours could use a facility like that.

Or not.

If we boasted such a gym, we might be reported to local authorities.

Raise your hand, if you'd like to have a Family Wrestling Gymnasium. 

Just think, parents. We could send our kids there to sort things out, instead of sending them to their own rooms.

Saturday

Questioning quarreling queens

"Oh, be quiet."

Are quality queens quarrelsome? Quite not!?!

Maybe a quirky few have simply reached their quotas. Either way, color us quizzical.
