Sadly, the French have idiots, too, and some of them
are telemarketers. I don't have caller ID, but there
is the same tip-off here as there was in the US. If
you answer and no one is there and then you hear a
click, it's a telemarketer. what happens is that a
machine auto-dials their list of suckers and then
transfers it to a human being (or close approximation
thereof) when someone answers. The pause and the click
is the giveaway every time. So whenever I hear them
I hang up.
It's never failed. I figure if it were really some-
one I know calling me or someone trying to reach me
about something important, they'd call right back.
But no one ever calls back, so it's telemarketers.
