These inane matters are given too much weight. STOP over reacting... It gets me in trouble.

Why the FUCK should I have to be waitlisted for my 101-series Calculus and Linear Algebra classes?
If you're gonna be a university with a good math and science department, make sure you can accommodate for the fact that a lot of people will want to take math and science classes.
Am I missing something here?

I give you the answer to your riddle, one you already thought of but didn't want to accept, and then you ditch me after we exchange contact information. Just because you're "invisible" doesn't mean I don't want to interact with you ffs.

Lady, I do not want to hear about how stressed and busy you are in your job as Entertainment Manager for Fest. Our group was promised a contract this year, has not yet received it though most groups received theirs months ago, and when our director tried to contact you early this summer before you got too busy and stressed, you waved her off until now. So now it is less than 2 weeks before opening, we still haven't had our contract meeting. We have over 30 people waiting to make plans based in this, and since we are having to bother you to fit it in, we're now going to get on your bad side. Well, if you'd have done your job EARLIER when we asked you to meet, we wouldn't have this problem, would we? So by all means, sit in your corner and eat paste, but please do it AFTER we get our goddamn contract.

Do insurance salespeople cry when I hang up on them? Probably not, as they are likely desensitized to it.
Still, I suppose it's not their stupid fault that they're calling me; it's the stupid people who gave them my number in the first place.
They also introduce themselves with much more of my information than I'm comfortable with.
"Hi! I'm with [some company that you've never dealt with or even heard of]. I understand that you are [doing something that said company probably shouldn't know anything about]. Let me offer you [related service]."

Anyway, this part is important for you to know: When there's a hangup with a 'prospect' [ie YOU], the computer either automatically dials the next person on the list, or the caller has to click an option beside your name like 'no answer/disconnect/try later.' It's annoying, I know..
However, if YOU - the prospect - say the magic words - DO NOT CONTACT ME AGAIN, TAKE ME OFF OF YOUR LIST - they will; there's an option for this on the computer, but they're only allowed to use it if they're directly told by the prospect. They may try to persuade, and you can say, look I know that's your job to make more than one attempt per call, but I'm not interested, remove me from your list... and THEN hang up.
They will never call again, but you have to say that.
Also, if you live in the US, you may reduce unwanted calls by entering your phone # into the National Do Not Call Registry.

Although, this company explicitly mentioned another company that I've been working with. If there's an exception in those situations, then.. .. fine; if not, I'm gonna raise some hell with someone.
I'm also gonna contact the 'base' company--the one that I've been working with--to figure out what's up.
