Here’s A Quarantine Silver Lining: Fewer Robo-Calls.
We're all sick of being home. We all need haircuts. We've all literally watched everything on Netflix. Even stuff we didn't want to watch. We're bored. Simple as that. And because of that, I think all of our fuses are just a little shorter than normal. So if by chance, something could be seen as good news right now, we should grab it.
Well here's one tiny little thing. We're all getting less robocalls. Sure, you're work email is pretty much it's own pandemic of virus ridden emails that are trying to phish every last bit of your soul... But your phone is ringing less with dumb calls.
Maybe you were actually wondering why no one was calling for the thirteenth time this week to make sure you know you have access to an extended warranty on your car? Or have you been curious why no one has left you voice mail threatening jail time for a stolen car in Texas? There aren't enough people working to make the stupid calls!
The thing is, it's not much, but every little bit helps. If my phone rings less, I'm a happy man. I don't like to talk on the phone much anyway, so robocalls don't have much luck with me. But hey, just enjoy this little gifts from the universe. I'm sure when it's all over, they will be back with a vengeance.
