One thing about my holidays....

I can't believe how many times my phone rang during the daytimes - telemarketers every one of them. It got to the point that I simply let all calls go through to the answering machine, and if they didn't leave a message then obviously they didn't need to talk to me. One call I did pick up was from an electricity company, whose representative told me that from next fortnight my bills would be coming from his company rather than my current one. When I asked why, he said it was because of the discounts they offered. Sneaky underhanded way to do business, I thought. I wonder how many people would take that at face value and assume it was a compulsory change. It took a bit of convincing (mentioning going to the ACCC if my billing company should change without my explicit permission) before he gave up on me.
