Dealing with cold callers

You have to keep a level head dealing with cold callers. Most of the time you can just avoid the call, block the number or hang up straight away if you are caught by accident. There are times where you are caught and you end up in a totally inappropriate conversation with an overly friendly person who thinks they have the right to tell you how to run your life. Worse, it might be someone who is trying to disrupt you and your life with unpleasant news of one sort or another. I had one of those accident phone calls referred to in Guy Arnold’s video and I more or less followed the advice I found he is giving and  it worked. I did ask them who they were ,please and  how they were. When they talked about the accident I asked if they were sure because that was indeed worrying. I said no one I knew had had an accident and so it was really unfortunate because they must be ringing the wrong number.I said it was really important they should find the right person.  They were apologetic and got off the phone. Solved. I always Google the numbers I don’t recognise because they are almost always cold call numbers. It is surprising how much documentation there is on these numbers. So why is it allowed to continue? Why are these numbers not blocked by telecommunications carriers? Why are people from other countries allowed to harass us and why is it allowed to continue in our own country? It’s the equivalent of someone barging in your front door when you open it and helping themselves to a cup of tea and hijacking your life and conversation  in the real world. It’ appallingly rude and unacceptable. There are some tips on the Guardian as to how to manage cold callers too. It needs to be dealt with in a more concerted way. I am never rude if I am caught by accident. These people might be working at the only job they can get. These people have gone to work to try and get money for their life. They may have no other choice in life. We do. We have technology and we need to more effectively filter and block these callers at all levels.
