Who Makes 8:30 a.m. Phone Calls?

September 10, 2004

Moira is -not- a happy camper today. I'm not a happy camper because the game plan was to sleep until 10, get up, return my stinkin' video by 11 a.m., and then come to class. Instead, I was awakened by the sound of my telephone ringing at 8:30.

My first impulse was to ignore it, but then I looked at the clock and thought "Hey! It's 8:30! It must be important!" So I get out of bed, look at the caller I.D. and it's not someone I know calling during some emergency situation... It's a telemarketer! At 8:30! I thought there was some kind of law about calling people before 9 a.m.??? Guess not! I was so mad! I think if you are calling me, an incredibly busy college student / worker of 2 jobs, at 8:30 a.m. you better be:

a) calling because I specifically requested that you call that early in order to wake my lazy ass up.

b) calling to inform me of some dire emergency that requires my immediate, albeit sleepy, attention.

c) calling to tell me that you have suddenly decided to give me a whole lotta money and that I better come pick it up RIGHT NOW before you change your mind.

or

d) ...

no, wait, that's it. normal people do not call other people at 8:30 a.m. ! it's inhuman! it's not nice! it's crazy! why the heck are you out of bed at that ungodly hour and why, oh why, would you be calling me at that time??? grrr.
