Anyone there? "NO"
Hope I can type without laughing out loud! Just got a phone call from one of those automated deals. He starts off with Hi, I am Jason and since you recently stayed in one of our resorts (NOT) you qualify for 4 free nites at Orlando Florida and all you have to do is rent a car from (some company). Now may I ask you a few questions to see if you qualify? I say "NO" Thanks, first are you over 21? I say "NO" Thanks do you have a Credit card in good standing? I say "NO". Well it looks like you don't quallify for our offer, thank you, have a good day. Laughing out loud by now!
I get these calls almost weekly, and used to just hang up, now I stay on to see if they have an opt out option. Some do, but don't know if it does any good. Some when its an actual person on the phone I ask them to take my name off their list, and they rudely just hang up before I get the word "list" out of my mouth. Well I know its a crappy job for you but don't be rude, I wasn't.
Any way, most of the time if the call is from some area code I don't recognize I just click it to voicemail. Figure if its a real person that actually needs to talk to me they will leave a message. Never happens.
We did have a time share for about 15 years and it was nothing but a money pit. Actually had to pay them money for "recording" fees when we signed it back to them. No way you can sell this crap, couldn't even give it away. Oh well live and learn, it is a big relief to be rid of it.
Will end with a quote from Will Rogers: Good judgement comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgement.
