Life I, Anonymous: It’s Elementary—The Bonanza Continues
posted by June 29 at 10:00 AMon
For those just tuning in, welcome to hour two of the I, Anonymous: It’s Elementary day-long bonanza, wherein a new I, Anonymous submission sent in by students at a local alternative elementary and middle school is revealed every hour on the hour.
Dear Solicitor and Telemarketer,
Telemarketers, why do you always call? It often seems that you call at 6:00 in the evening when families are eating dinner and it is very frustrating. It’s also really irritating when it’s a recording on the phone and it goes on forever. When you call and people say they are not interested in what you’re selling, it’s bothersome how you keep on talking. There are times we are afraid to answer the phone because it may be a telemarketer. Even on Saturday morning when we think it could be grandma calling, it’s not; it’s Bob with satellite cable.
Solicitors, you are almost just as bad. It is very annoying when you come up to the door at 8:00 in the evening when some kids are trying to go to bed. A family might be having a party and they don’t want you to come to their door selling stuff. At least you don’t bother people as much as the telemarketers do, who call 24/7.
I can’t understand what it would be like having your job. Don’t you get stressed when people are always hanging up on you or slamming a door in you face? Why don’t you find a job where you are helping people, not disturbing them?
We all feel you, anonymous child.
(I mean that in the non-felonious way.)
