On political "salescalls" and things that make me scream....

democratreppic Ring, ring.....
"Hi, you've reached Kyle and Tracey, we can't (won't) come to the phone right now, but if you leave your name and a message, we'll get back to you as soon as we can....BEEEEEEEP"
"Hi, did you hear the debate last night? I'm ___________from the______________party, and I wanted to make sure that you know that politicians are____________.......Don't forget to vote!" BEEEEEEEP!
Everyday, the same kind of calls. I'm going to scream.
Here's the thing, they are from the party my husband is registered with.
A question.... why are they harassing us? If we're already registered ________'s then, DUH, we don't need to be convinced to vote as ________'s. Why waste the call?
Next- in this "evangelical endeavor" (their trying to get people to convert to their political view, I suppose) do they really expect someone to either pick up the phone, and hear the teenager being paid to make these calls sand change their political view? Or--- worse yet, are they really expecting someone to come home from work, hear the message left on their MACHINE and convert?
Doubtful. If they call today, I;'m picking up the phone and telling them I'm writing myself in, or suing for harassment. (ok.... that's a lie, but their driving me NUTS!)
Oh, and another thing..... Not identifying yourself, and starting the message with "Hi, did you hear debate last night..." does not TRICK me. I know immediately, who you are. A tip....NOT one of my friends would EVER call, and leave me a message like that, and if they did, it would be a joke. Your political jedi- mind tricks don't work here. Give it up.
Finally, in the category of things that make me want to scream.....If I see the commercial for "Spongebob's Best Day Ever"
One more time....My head will explode through my mouth, causing a scream that will scare the North Koreans out of bomb making. I will then immediately book a flight to Orlando, and stand at the gates of Nickelodeon Studios (the gates of h***?) and sing at the top of my lungs (don't make me come down there and sing,.... you DON'T want to hear it) Kumbahyah, in my most annoying girl-scout voice.
So today, a the comments- please tell us all, about the most annoying telemarketer- experience you've had, or- share your political testimony if you've been converted by one.....
Alternatively: Spongebob, love him hate him, make you want to scream?
Finally outside of the stupid "whale" noise guys... what is your most annoying commercial?
