What Was I Saying about Telemarketing?

Amidst the spate of recent telemarketing calls I've been getting— despite the fact that I'm on the national Do Not Call list, ahem— last night I received a truly novel call. Phone rang, I answered, and it was a Jehovah's Witness, wanting to witness to me over the phone.

The Jehovah's Witnesses have rung my doorbell often enough, but this is the first time in my life that I've ever received a Jehovah's Witness telemarketing call. I was courteous to her, as I generally try to be toward people who are well-meaning, but I extricated myself from the call just as fast as I could.

I suppose technically this call slips through the "nonprofit organization" loophole in the Do Not Call law. I sure hope it doesn't become a regular occurrence.
