Here she is waiting outside my apartment, just waiting to pounce. I'm scared.
This is Angie Hicks, of Angie's List fame. Ever since I went to her website to check up on a local business, she won't leave me alone. Of course they wanted me to buy into their service, which I didn't want to do. First they sent me a few polite email "invitations" to join, which I ignored. Then they called in the Big Gun, Angie herself.
It seems like every day Angie sends me a personal plea to come to her site. (I think that's some sort of code word.) She wants me, badly. I told her I was married, and asked here to leave me alone. She won't take no for an answer. Listen to me Angie...."no" means NO! I've moved on.
I think she must have learned about perseverance from the Wall Street Journal. If you've ever subscribed to the WSJ, then let your subscription lapse, you'll know what I'm talking about. They hound you unmercifully. They must have spent a small fortune sending me mailers.
Then they resorted to calling me on the phone. "Please.....PLEEEEEEEEEEASE come back" they begged. I reminded them I'm on the no-call list, but they said we already had a "relationship"....thank God for that Evade and Escape book I found at the half-price used book store.
Now it's Professional Builder magazine. It's nothing more that a book of ads, and I don't read it anymore. When my subscription ran out (it was free to begin with) they fired up their email pleadings. They send me half a dozen a day, really! I've tried to unsubscribe, but they ignore my request.
What is it with these people? Do they somehow think I have money? Have they seen my penny jar? Are they all Angie's kinfolks?
I think I need to officially sign up with that witness protection program. *Shhh....I'm not here*
