This morning, as I sat at my keyboard, the phone rang four times, as it does at every meal and mealtime all over this nation, with unsolicited calls that ignore the do-not-call mandate.
This, I construe as a breach of peace. If I rang your doorbell several times during a meal, I'm sure you would take legal action against it. I find difficulty in the fact my carrier is doing nothing to correct the problem. Consumer Reports, to which I subscribe, tells me the carriers can address the issue and stop them. Since, apparently, no effort is being done on their parts, I feel they are complicit in this breach of my peace and of millions of fellow citizens.
Show me a carrier that will monitor and reject these intrusions in our lives and I'll switch in a heartbeat, as I'm sure others would. I notice at the bottom of this form (Rutland Herald letter to the editor online submission), I am required to state I am not a robot. This is lacking in our phone service and I am waiting for the day a class action suit is filed for making us pay for harassment at mealtimes.
