Have you gotten one of those phoney-baloney robocalls trying to trick you into believing your car manufacturer is giving you a last chance to extend your warrantee? Apparently they made the mistake of calling Sen. Schumer’s cell phone and he sicced the FTC on them.

I don’t know if they had demographics suggesting I was the biggest rube in New York state. But between my home, work and cell numbers I must have gotten these calls hundreds of times. No, needless to say, I wasn’t fooled. But it did waste me some time because after a while I got so annoyed that I would stay on the phone for the live person to come on so I could yell at them and tell them to stop calling me.

Yeah, I know, I have issues.
