It's a Random Happy Tuesday

Link up with Comedy Plus for Happy Tuesday and Stacy Uncorked for Random Tuesday Thoughts.

Have you been getting a lot of robo-calls like I have?  Here are some stats:  In December, 2021 alone, there were 3.6 Billion robocalls placed in the US. That's 115 Million per day and 4.8 million every hour.  Wow!

Sometimes I answer; sometimes I don't.  When I do, or when it's a voicemail, it's usually a woman's voice saying that she is "following back up" with me.  What the heck?  How can she be following up with me when I've never spoken to her in my life?  That bugs the heck out of me!  I wish it were a real person so I could ask when we had spoken before.



They want to sell me insurance, debt relief, or a car warranty, stuff like that.  If I am ever in the market for one of those services, I will call the company, but I don't want them to call me.  Do these types of calls really work on people?


And when the first thing they say is, "Don't hang up," that is exactly what I do!  I block and block and block numbers, but since they use spoofing which makes the call look like it's coming from a local number, sometimes I actually answer thinking maybe it's my pharmacy, doctor's office, or something about my mom's care. 

 
In the big scheme of things, with all that is going on in the world, this is a just a minor nuisance, a "First World Problem," and I should count myself blessed.  And I do.



Is anyone feeling this way about Outlander right now?  I will wait till the whole season is out so I can binge it!


And how about some puns?









Oh my gosh, this cracked me up!


And last, but not least, a first world problem for cats.
Have a great week!

  1. Heeheehee! Thank you, it's great to start the day with a few laughs.

    Robocalls are a pain, and if i knew a secret to stopping them i'd share it but i don't.

  2. I'm sorry you couldn't like up the the linky. I did it for you. Bugger. I hate it when things don't work right.

    We get tons of these calls too, but we don't answer then. We just ignore them.

    Love all the funnies and that cookie and milk? I broke the cookie in half and dipped it in the milk and ate it. Yummy.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. ♥

  3. Laughter is something I LOVE! Oh, poor kitten, what a sad face :-( ! Love all of these. I pick up the phone. say God loves you and go find Him. Many of them do not call back. robo calls should be sent to politicians only and anyone else meddling in our affairs! Once they stopped calling the landline they started calling the cellphone too. A N N O Y I N G !Thanks for the smiles.
