Comments:re: Proposed Amendment of Telemarketing Sales Rule I am writing to express my opposition to the proposed amendment. My preference in dealing with any business has always been "don't call me, I'll call you." I used to find it annoying when my pharmacy phoned to ask if I realized my prescription was due for refill, or my bank phoned to ask if I new the latest CD rates. I was REALLY peeved the month before the election when I'd come home from work every day to find 3 or 4 lengthy pre-recorded messages asking for my vote for various political candidates. And that doesn't include the calls I then received in the evening. NO, thank you, I don't care whether or not it's from a firm with whom I have a business relationship. I do NOT want extra sales calls, which is exactly what they are, whether the business actually admits it or not.
