Is The Do Not Call Registry Working? How Many Calls Are You Still Getting At Home?

"Hello?"  [ No response].  {Pause} {Click} {Click}.  "HelloI'mSuzywithAcmeCompanyandwehaveeverythingyouneed.  Whatwouldyouliketobuytoday?"

Certainly there are many things in life more annoying than MIPTC complains about, but MIPTC is tired of being called at home, and I've signed up for the Do Not Call Registry with just about every telephone number I'm even remotely connected with.  The calls have gotten less, but they're still getting through. 

You too?  You're still getting calls even though you've already signed up for the Do Not Call Registry?  Well, you have several options:

The last one is my personal favorite.  Typically the caller responds that she won't give you her home telephone number, and I'll respond with "Then why are you calling me at home?" 

Then my phone goes {Click} {Dial tone}.

They usually get the message.
