Small Town Politics
There are typically two parties involved in elections and each has their pros and cons. I have tried to stay open-minded on this whole affair--until the phone calls started.
Seems Candidate A has decided to spend a lot of dough on automated phone calls. Phone calls that call and call and call--always during the evening hours and dinnertime when I don't want phone calls. And they are automated phone calls which are even more annoying. Plus, if you have caller I.D. and let them go unanswered, they call you again 3 or 4 times the next day. This goes on and on until you finally snap and call the number that dialed you and request that your number be taken off their list.
Then they ignore your request. And they call you again the next day. And the next. And even the day after that.
I may rip the phone out of the wall by the time April comes around. And yes, we still have a house phone--solely because I don't want this sorta stuff on my cell. Can you imagine?
Is this the new "water torture" of elections now? Criminy.
