The last straw was last night around 7:00 PM. I was downstairs in the basement doing some cleaning when my mom comes down and says that there's a call for me. I'm running up the stairs as fast as possible and I grab the receiver and say hello, only to hear "Hi, Julianne. This is blah-blah; are you going to be voting on November 2nd?" I said yes, and when they asked me another question I said I was busy and hung up. I've had enough so I've decided that when either my mom or I answers the phone, we'll both immediately say "May I ask who's calling?" before we do anything else.
As to why I'm the one getting all the political calls, I figure it's because I'm probably classified as a "young voter" and those seem to be the votes that matter most, plus it seems that this election year is a really crucial one so they want guarantees that someone is going to vote. The calls will most likely be more frequent in a couple of weeks, so I have a feeling there'll be a lot of may-I-ask-who-is-callings to come. Bleh.
