Five To Seven Is Dinnertime ... After 10 Is Bedtime

April 14, 2013
By J. Paul Lombardo ( , The Post-Journal

Does anyone wonder what happened to respecting dinner and bedtime hours when it comes to phone calls by telemarketers, politicians and charity organizations? Also, do members of the same group who call you (often interrupting dinner/bedtime hours) ever talk to each other? Don't they have a master list acknowledging that they've already interrupted your dinner/bedtime hour so they don't call you on numerous occasions the same day? And shouldn't telemarketers, charities and political groups respect that many people don't want their phones to ring off the wall on Sundays when they're trying to relax before starting another work week on Monday? And if the purpose of their call is so important, why don't they leave messages if they encounter an answering machine? (Thank goodness for caller IDs and answering machines.)
