After reading birdmans post about the nuisance calls that can be the bane of our lives, I thought I had better bring to everyone's attention the usefulness of signing up with the Telephone Preference Service.
Once we had joined, after a short wait of around 28 days, the pain in the rectum calls all but dried up completely and if you do get one, politely tell the caller that you are under the protection of the Telephone Preference Service and that by ringing this number, they are breaking the law.
It puts the fear of shit up them and you never hear from then again.
Go on. It only takes a few minutes and it is free.
