That's pretty good. I have unlimited minutes with my cellphone plan too. I can't lose with this strategy. Plus, you are tying them up so they can't mess with the next person.
If everyone adopted this practice they'd get so tired of holding they might stop. Or is that just wishful thinking?
I haven't gotten one of these in a long time ... but next time I do ... I know what I'm doing to them
