1. The telemarketers are not disappearing fast enough for me.

Dang phone calls at 8:10a. m., when I'm planning to sleep another 2+ hours.
Dang phone calls calling me from the bathroom to hear a lot of nonsense.

I finally bought a set of phones that display call # & place calling from.
Dang phone calls list places that are not valid locations.
Dang phone calls imitate phone numbers I have legitimally received.

New phones have a blocking mechanism, which I've been using liberally lately.
I don't know if I'm blocking any legitimate calls, and don't know how to unblock them if I am.

Dang telemarketers.....

3. I keep my sound turned off.

If callers are legitimate they will leave a message and I call them back. Any calls from my contact list are answered.

Almost all my calls anymore are bogus. People who know me just text me.

4. Me too. It's the only way to get any peace and quiet.

Sad that we're hiding from our phones.

5. The phone I'm referring to is a land line.

I feel I have to be available to a family member in a long-term care facility who is psychologically needy.
My cell phone is a flip phone; I don't text. (Suppose I could, but I don't care to.)

7. That is how I do it. Everyone in my family except maybe three people text

instead of call. With a text I can right away whether it is bogus, I ignore all phone calls from numbers that are not programmed in my phone's directory.

6. I counted 8 jobs. All but two were the victim of artificial intelligence, not automation.

But, I get your point. Some job classes are one step from extinction. The surprise is what jobs come next (hint, many pay well).
