Dear Cold Callers

Guess what?

Just because I have answered the home phone number does not mean I am happy to take your call.

And just because I *am* at home does not mean I have nothing to do (aside from dossing around on Facebook, reading and commenting on some very funny blog posts, and resisting the temptation to buy even more training kit).

And since you didn't ask (because you obviously forgot) let me tell you that I am very busy trying to figure out the format for a really important presentation for a client to their operating committee (that's the big wigs who call the shots, in case you were wondering).

In fact, I am that overloaded with 'brain fry-up' (a new term, just invented, will copyright shortly) that you were lucky to even have me answer the phone in the first place as between getting fresh air to clear my head - thanks to the Moose and the RP Fit Club lads - and finally showering and changing out of my filthy training kit, I have become particularly adept at sitting and staring at my Mac for hours on end. And not answering the phone full stop. Because that would entail getting up and my arms and legs are quite grateful for some respite, thank you very much.

Anyway. I digress.

My point is, if you are going to call, then can you please ensure at the very least that you make it clear whence you are calling from, never mind why (which you never clarified either, by the way)?

Because after my third attempt to understand who the bloody hell 'Widipidiya' was, I could almost forgive you for hanging up on me.

As it is, I win.
