    I get so many of these that I don't answer numbers I don't know. I've missed actual calls before because I won't answer if I don't recognize a number or the location it is from. It's always "Katie on a recorded line" or something about my Medicare health benefits that I don't have. I'm on the Do Not Call list and it doesn't matter. I also get calls from spoofed numbers usually with the same first three digits. Called back a couple of times. One lady cursed me out, called me a bitch and hung up. Another was really understanding and I explained that someone probably spoofed her number because she hadn't actually called.

    The guy asking if the caller was a robot was real aggrivating because I've worked in a lot of call centers and have had a lot of people assume I'm a robot. Normally I just laugh it off and assume that just means I sound professional but let me tell you it gets real aggrivating when someone won't drop it.

    I love how he isn't just hilarious, he always takes immediate action to fix the problem he addresses. I wish someone like him would run for president. Someone with a sense of humor would be real with the public. Donald Trump already broke the now any celebrity can do it. Why not someone we trust? You can literally do your same job from a position of power. Imagine how funny the State of the Union would be. But I guess you'd have to be a natural born citizen though? there's ways around that

    If you still get robocalled, you're doing something wrong. The actual issue isn't that big of an issue if you've been alive less than 300 years. As Oliver just showed, you can actually have a lot of fun with telephone scammers. For instance: Call-forwarding. I'm not suggesting anyone actually do this... However, you could set up a voip number. Spam every phone list that's likely to get you robocalled. When the calls start coming in, automate your call forwarding to redirect the calls to Ajit Pai and your local representatives. We can think bigger than one call every ninety minutes.

      This is cool and funny in theory, but the calls always come from different numbers. I can block every number that ever robocalls me and still get the same number of robocalls every day. I've even had the calls look like I am calling myself. If it was just a matter of fucking with the phone number the calls were coming from, this wouldn't even be an issue. We'd all have moved on with our lives and had a good laugh.
