Out of the Blue

MrsBlue warned me that Hudson the wonder dog was onto some critter's trail last night, and that I should be careful about letting her out. Naturally, I heeded this, and ignored her barking about going out, well into the wee hours. Of course, when I awoke this morning I found a present for my efforts, and a pup chagrined over having left it. Cleaning up after the dog before your first coffee of the day is not a way to get your day off to a great start... I think the next time this comes up I'll just let her out and risk the morning body count to avoid the morning doody count.

Ok, I looked him up - now he's my idol too!

You need to get your hands on 'Turds'

The tears will not stop. He is my mentor.

'I got mail' and 'Brothers' are very good as well.

I have to deal with the kids tomorrow morning so I can't go to far into the deep end. That's for tomorrow night.

Good night.

Telemarketing groups have sued to scratch the effort, arguing that it abridges free-speech rights.

So what they're saying here is, even though they know for sure that a person doesn't want to be bothered, they still have a right to make their meager un-educated worthless living by calling anyway. God how I hate these d*ck h*le s*cking *ss l*cking t*lemarket*ng c*m sl*rping wh*res (people). If I had the power to sign a bill that would put every one of those bastards out of work tomorrow, I would sign it without a hint of remorse.

Gees, how many times have you switched carriers in the last 18 months? But if you have never done business with Sprint, they won't be calling you.

A poster on Slashdot mentioned that the following types of businesses were exempt from the Do Not Call list:

- long-distance phone companies
- airlines
- banks and credit unions; and
- the business of insurance, to the extent that it is regulated by state law.

(see this post: http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=69104&cid=6310735 )

You said:
Unfortunately, I get the feeling that the National Do Not Call List is going to be almost completely useless to me. I was discouraged to learn that it does not apply to the vast majority of telemarketing calls that I get: mainly long-distance companies wanting me to switch.

Story says:
Nonprofit and political callers will be free to ignore it, but will have to honor consumer requests not to be called back. Businesses will be free to call customers for 18 months after making a sale, but they too will have to honor opt-out requests.

It does cause petsa bit of distress if they must relieve themselves indoors, but you may want to checkfor reports of raid animals in your area before letting her out alone again. It is that time of year.
I guess you could walk her on a leash...

Well said! My dogs don't try to hide it anymore, the little one stops at your feet and lets it go right in front of you. Bastard.

But if it keeps those pesky marketeers from calling my house at all times of the day I'll be happy

If you all sign up then they will have no choice but to call me!

Yay!
