    Yeah, so I'm on the train yesterday listening to music and my phone vibrates. Whatever, right? WRONG! It was a number from my areacode so I figured it would be somebody I know, and I pick up the phone. I hear some girl talking and I sorta just keep listening(you know how you do that to see if they're saying some shit they don't want you to hear? whatever..) and then she starts talking a lout louder.

    "Hi, I'm [insert actress name here] and you can see me at my newest movie, [insert movie name here] which opens on Friday, July 16th!"


    Click, I hang up and am extremely infuriated. Mothefuckers got my cell phone number(?!?!) to start with, and then called me to advertise a fucking movie! Jesus christ, if that isn't and ULTIMATE low then I don't know what is.


    * I forgot the name of the actress and movie..

    I get a shitload of ads by mail on my phone, but I can't read anything so I don't really mind. People tell me they're just ads for porn websites and shit like that.

    If they were smart they'd have 2 people talking about a movie to eachother and then hang up. That way you wouldn't know it was advertising...

    Telemarketing is nothing new. I get calls from cop charities, insurance companies, telephone companies, and many more on my landline. Not to mention calls from the library about a book that some woman I've never met has not been returned.

    Edit: Gotta say that ever since I put my number on the "Do Not Call" list for my state I have recieved a lot less phone calls.
