I Am Tired of People Calling Me On the Phone

| Thu Apr. 25, 2013 3:42 PM EDT

I've been getting a ton of telemarketing calls lately. They're all over the map: some are from people I've done business with before, some are cold calls, some are illegal robocalls, some are from opinion pollsters, etc.  But one way or another, I get at least half a dozen every day, and sometimes as many as twice that number.

I'm curious: is this just me? Or are lots of people noticing a big uptick in this stuff?
