I am fed up. An organization that is supposed to be my friend, has become my enemy.
After another sleep plagued night, I finally fell asleep at 4 this morning. Jim quietly left for work, careful to not wake me. Then the telephone rang. 8:00 is not an unreasonable time to call on a good day, but this morning... not so good. And in my opinion, there is NEVER a good time for telephone solicitations. The American Institute for Cancer Research was the one calling. Again. I sent them the following email:
For months now your robo-caller has been calling me at all times of the day, beginning at 8:00 am and ending at 9:00 pm. Sometimes you call once a day, more often, though, you call at least two times. If I answer the call, I get a dial tone. If I don't answer the call, it rings just long enough to set the answering machine off. Stop already! As an 8 year survivor of breast cancer, I have a positive outlook on life with a belief that I can survive just about everything. However, I'm not certain that I will survive the harassment of AICR.
PLEASE remove 573 xxx-xxxx from your call list immediately.
And no, I don't care to make a donation. As with most individuals I know, I carefully choose which organizations receive donations of time and money - and I choose to NEVER donate to any organization that invades the privacy of my home with telephone solicitations.
