Telemarketers....they are too good.

Most of the time I'm the type of girl who doesn't talk to telemarketers. I try my best not to be mean to them, but mostly, I just tell them no thanks and hang up.

Ninety -nine percent of the time I'm just not interested in whatever it is they are trying to sell.

But, tonight they got me.


It was someone calling on behalf of American Diabetes Association to renew my membership. I think it ran out last month. I was just going to let it expire. I read Forecast magazine. But I've been trying my best to be smarter with my money lately. And that included letting some subscriptions go.

My membership to ADA and to JDRF were some of those things.

(Please don't stone me for it!)

But, the lady was just so nice. And I fell for it, hook, line, and sinker. And I'm a proud member of ADA for another 2 years.

Oh, and she also made a comment about my accent. LOL

Those of you that have met I really that hard to understand??

Well, I'd say that is money well spend. And no, I haven't met you so I can't comment on your accent. :( I hope to be able to some day soon though!!

LOL!! I'm kidding of course, BUT would LOVE to meet you in real life. Someday.
