A telemarketer called my elevator
John Timmer for Ars Technica:
After a brief, wonder-filled period when the Do Not Call Registry seemed to be like magic, telemarketers are back. It's now rare for me to go a day without offers to help with the student loans I paid off decades ago or the credit card balances I studiously avoid having. I usually manage to hang up before the recording can finish its first sentence. But in this case, I stepped on to an elevator with a pitch in full swing and had to listen to it for six floors, not to mention the time involved in the doors opening and closing.
Until a few years ago, I never got telemarketing calls on my cell phone, but now I get about two robocalls a week. But a telemarketer calling an elevator? Robocalls are getting even more rediculous.
