Like many of you I filled out a few of those ballots for the various contests at the bike show, and am now regretting putting my real phone number on one of them. Just got a phone call from "Isabelle" at Investors Group Financial Services (604 431 0117), who wanted to setup an appointment with me to discuss her "amazing mortgage repayment tips" and other similar bullshit. Politely told her I was extremely busy and did not have time for anything of the sort (completely true). She started inquiring as to my line of work, whether me being busy had anything to do with the Olympics, etc. Then started suggesting she'll call back in February, and then in three months, etc. What a pushy fucking broad! Absolutely ridiculous how pushy and annoying she was. One day I'll invent a way to slap people over the phone line.
Anyone else getting such bullshit calls?
