WinkGo get a BB gun for the run running free. As long as you don't take an eye out, they are GREAT deterrents for free-roaming dogs.

~~~

When we lived in Tampa, we lived next door to a guy who ran a church out of his house. Sundays really sucked as our house was the last house on the left and zoning/environmental laws ensured nobody could build behind or to the right of us. So the preacher had a dog who liked to come crap in our yard, occasionally during their 'Sunday Holy Words of Wisdom' hours...so I decided this was a perfect opportunity to take up a new self-improvement hobby - art! 'Modern Impressionist' work, doncha know! 
The preacher's house on the left was the PERFECT canvas! The garage wall was a very bright white stucco with no windows or doors, our yards loosely segregated by a row of Italian Cypress I had planted. 
When his dog came lumbering out and crapped in my yard, I would grab my flat shovel and play 'Kick-sh*t' onto the bright white stucco. Place the flat front next to the steaming pile then kick the bottom of the blade, thus launching a high-speed prosh*ttile right at the stucco, although sometimes it would land on the roof. Sometimes it might get a piece of cypress greenery...and it would harden on his wall for quite some time.
Was it Renior? Monet? Degas? Nope! Genuine 'PaLoup'. It took him MONTHS to notice, by which time his wall looked like a palomino horse, if not a spotted snow leopard, yet my yard was sh*t-free.

Another call from 'MY?' back and knee brace advocates!  They have received reports (FROM WHO?) that I was having some sort of pain.  The dude asked if I was in pain...Hell yes!  I said.  I need drugs! He said that they deal in braces. The mother f*cker already had me on hold for over 3 minutes.  I said, in my own clever and sarcastic way...I need a brace for my penis!  By this time, he knows I'm playing with him. Yeah! F*ck you very much!  It kills me how all of these scammers can just avoid the national do not call list.
I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

Get their phone numbers and give them to the next scammers that call you.  Let them talk to each other!  LOL

Technology has rendered the National Do Not Call List Obsolete. I joined it in 2003 when it cost $13 per year and reported many violations which required the offender's telephone number. Todays "robot" calls using random computer generated telephone numbers for our caller ID is untraceable. They even can target us by using local area codes and even local prefixes to fool us into thinking it may be someone we know! A couple months ago I had an incoming call on my cellphone from my cellphone! No message. I informed a helpful young lady at the AT&T store that my cellphone had called it's self. She didn't think that was possible. I showed her the incoming call on my phone from my number. She said you can call your number and did it but your phone cannot call it's self. I assured her I did not call myself. She replied "Strange". Two days ago I received a call from myself on my home phone. Voice mail with no message. I tried it and the call to myself went directly to voice mail. Of course! it's the A-hole telemarketer's robots randomly generating local caller IDs and randomly calling local telephone numbers. I live in a small town making it more likely that they could match twice.AngryAngryAngryAngryAngryAngryAngryAngryAngryAngryAngry

^  I got that phone call yesterday.  Or, at least, I think I did.  Let it go to message.  Heard it from another room.  Something about pain and a brace.  Never gave it a thought.  I erased it later on.

I received my last solicitation call however many years ago it was that I got rid of my traditional phone service and installed Magic Jack.

Not a one since then.
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Haven't seen 'Magic Jack' advertised in a LONG time.
Some solicitors have figured out how to get around NOMOROBO, so if I am bored and they call, they become 'fair game' as quick as I can turn the tables on them through conversation without them hanging up on me...then they get to answer little questions like (often asked in different ways)
Wow! You're really good at this 'cold calling'! What did you do before were doing this?
  • What's your real, given name because I've never met a 'Richard Thomas' from Indonesia. 
  • Wouldn't you rather use your real name?
  • Is your family in line with your job and are they proud of you?
  • Are YOU proud of you?
  • Do you go home to a dark & lonely 1-room shack wondering who you really are and what your real purpose on this earth is?
  • Do you feel worthwhile, or do you sit in the corner and cry because you aren't any more than you have made yourself?
  • Do you think Jesus is proud of you?
  • When your mother gets off work at the corner light post and had a chance to wash out her mouth, is she proud of you?
  • Do you own your very own loaded weapon? Why not?
I DO NOT care if they start stuttering and crying, or just decide to quit breathing *my* air - in fact I get off on it when one of these goofs loses it. I've had them crying or cussing on the phone, although I've never heard a gunshot - my objective is to keep them on long enough for them to learn to hate me a little more...maybe change them a bit. Start at about 4 minutes and that is me at my best with a weak phone solicitor.

Another freaking health insurance hard sell! This lady was not having a good day! The introduction mentioned Blue Cross & Blue Shield. First of all...I hate BC BS!  I asked her if she was a representative of BC BS. She flew off the handle at me. "Press 2, press 2! You jackass!"  Like I'm wasting her f*cking time!  I was going to say to her, once she told me who she worked for.  Thanks, now I know who to report for violating the National Do Not Call list.
