Telemarketers Beware!

If you want to avoid the funny phone-calls, then try this:

Just count the rings. Is your mathematics up to it?

With 6 or 7 or 8 times they will ring off anyway

So you won’t have to sprint downstairs and waste the time of day.

If it’s important, somebody you know, they won’t hang up,

Your grand mother or Auntie Jo, they cannot count. What luck!

A phone call that’s important I shall never miss again,

All because I did my math and could count up to 10.

At least that’s my experience this side of the Atlantic

But maybe your side you won’t think this advice so fantastic.
