I don’t get angry or upset like most people do. In fact, I actually welcome the calls because at this point in my life I just find them to be a great source of entertainment. When bill collectors call me, I listen to each and every voice-mail in its entirety… the more outrageous, the better!
I don’t know how many times they’ve threatened to send a courier to my home or place of employment with a summons if I didn’t call back right away. So far, it’s been going on 3 years and no one has ever shown up at my home or place of employment.
So, the next time someone calls and says you’re going to be served the next day, just tell them “OK, I’ll see you tomorrow!” I promise that will be the last you’ll hear of it until they sell your debt to someone else and the cycle starts all over again.
As for myself, when I get those calls I let them go straight to voice-mail so that I can download them to my computer using Google voice, then upload the audio to my blog so that others can hear these outrageous calls and know there’s nothing to be afraid of.
So you see, while they’re making a mockery of the crap-hole industry they work in, I’m sitting back in front of my computer with a glass of wine making a mockery out of them by exposing all their dirty little secrets for all the world to see. If I were a bill collector, I’d hate me too!
