It seems the only time the phone rings, especially my cell phone, it is someone wanting to sell me something. I’m on the Do Not Call list, but that doesn’t seem to stop them at all. They still keep on callin.
My mail, I don’t see any letters anymore…it’s just ads and bills. I’m on that mail preference list too. :p
The TV, I fall asleep because there are too many commercials. It probably doesn’t help at all that there isn’t a lot worth watching on TV anymore.
The internet…well for now I have done a very good job of blocking those ads. But I know it is coming.
The radio… I listen to “commercial free” radio that has commercials. I once sent in an email because the ads were being played over the music. It didn’t stop the ads, but they got their act together. They tried to argue that they don’t play ads…um I beg to differ. Business gives you money and you announce it repeatedly, that’s an ad.
I don’t answer my phone. I don’t answer my door. My husband thinks that I’m paranoid…although, he is beginning to agree with me about it not being worth it. He’ll answer and be stuck telling them no and them not listening.
It used to be that we had free TV that was paid for by advertisers. But no more…we pay for TV AND we get ads.
Yes I get that these folks need to make a living, but couldn’t they do it the old fashion way…make good products that people want? Sigh!
