Honest Work

I ran across this article about the new national Do-Not-Call list, and it’s pretty standard fare, so I was just going to move on and forget about it. Then I saw the author’s parting shot:

Finally, a word to you telemarketers who are about to e-mail me with angry denouncements of the federal do-not-call list and to complain about losing your jobs:

I once cleaned houses to make ends meet, which means I quite literally scrubbed toilets to make a living. That, my dears, is honest work. You might give it a shot.

Ha ha! I love it.

    I saw the same article this morning on MSN. I agree with the writer 100%. A little honest work never killed anybody.

    Nice idea. I doubt we'll have anything like it in South Africa for quite a while to come. *touch wood* tele-marketing calls aren't toooo painful, we only get a two / three a month.

    Recently though a “friend” seems to have given my number to virtually every gym in the area (supposedly put my number in some box, I KNOW my friends would never do that) – but what a brilliant way to get out of the 'where did you get my number from?' question.
