This is a telemarketer from Academic Adviser, and the girl who calls is named "Ashley". She called me 15 times!! The first time she called was around 8 in the morning, she asked if I was interested in furthering my schooling within the next 3 months, I told her I was not interested, that I was dealing with a sick child. She apologized and hung up. I no more and hung up and she called again! I said "you just called, quit calling!" and hung up. The next 12 times I was unable to get to the phone (sick child), and let it go to my voice-mail. The 15th and last time, I got rude and nasty! I said "Look Ashley, I told you the first time you called I was NOT interested that I am dealing with a sick child! If you do not take my name and number off of your list, I WILL file harassment charges against you and your company. I am on the Do Not Call list, now do not call me again, do you understand?" Ashley apologized, and said she would take my information off of her list. I have not received a call from her or that company since!
I don't like getting mean and rude with people, but sometimes you have to.
