They are non stop. Telemarketers! Makes me angry just thinking about it. And these days, they can actually call you from a local area code (lucky for me I still have a Virginia area code). There are apps out there to stop them, but most of them cost money. Clearly, to some it is worth it.
However, this telemarketer culture has changed us. We no longer answer our phones. Well, your kids never answered your call anyway, but now people really don't answer their phones. Texting is great, but sometime you really need to talk to a person to get the point across (or you can just be like my girlfriend and send a 1,000 word message!).
