Time's Running Out

Texas recently passed legislation establishing a statewide “do not call” list that telemarketers must buy and use to avoid calling the people who have signed up for this service. The list has been building since January 1, and will go into effect at the beginning of July. (If you’re a Texas resident, you can sign up at http://www.texasnocall.com/. Go do it now!)

Telemarketers are evidently aware that this is going to put a dent in their marketing plans. We’ve been getting a ton of telemarketing calls lately, including the absolutely wretched ones that don’t even have a human on the other end, but only a recording.

Your days are numbered, scumbags! C’mon, July.
