For at LEAST five years I have been getting robo calls from this bitch Rachael telling me not to worry, because nothing is wrong with my credit card(s). I’ve pressed 3 to NOT be called again; I’ve pressed 1 and spoken to an agent in a NOT so pleasant tone threatening her with bodily harm if they keep calling me; I’ve NOT answered when I see CARD SERVICES on my caller ID, and I’ve taken the call and simply laid the phone down and let them burn their $$$ and play their recording. I’ve learned that Rachael is one determined ‘ho, and if I don’t ANSWER the call, she will call back 3-4 times over the course of the day.
She called about 10 days ago when I happened to be in a particularly foul mood. I said ‘hello’ and then pressed all 10 numbers on the keypad and hung up. An hour later, she called back – repeat performance. Repeat two more times. HOWEVER – observant gal that I am, I noticed that each time the calling number was different. After five calls I was more batshit crazy than usual so I got a bottle of wine and a glass, sat down at my computer, and opened EXCEL. I entered the numbers Rachael had called from that day, arranged then in descending order, and put my diabolical plan into motion.
First I called each of Rachael’s numbers. Had to listen to the usual ‘our options have changed’ krap (btw – have you ever noticed that the options NEVER CHANGE????) and when given the option to press a # to be put on the ‘do not call’ list – I did. Then I started calling ALL THE NUMBERS BETWEEN THE ONES I HAD, each time entering the number in my Excel. After 10-12 calls, I would sort the numbers again. After calling all the ‘tween numbers, I started calling the numbers LOWER than my lowest last-4 until I got a bunch of disconnected numbers. THEN…. I scrolled down to the HIGHEST number and started calling on that end of my list until the same thing happened. 113 calls total. A bottle of not-so-cheap wine.
Bitch hasn’t called in over a week. [The blanks are ALL HER!!!!]
I have no life! HAHAHA!
