It is that time of year where candidates that are running for office use various form of communications to get the attention of voters. This includes phone calls with prerecorded messages. I can understand and respect this, but what I cannot respect is the fact that I am unable to end the phone call. Instead I have to let the message play through, before I am able to get a dial tone again. This reminds me of the dirty tactics that solicitors use. If I don’t want to listen to some recorded message, than I shouldn’t be forced to. Simply put I should have the power to end the call and not the other way around!
