Agressive Marketing?

Or just plain annoying?

Phone rings today at about 4:30 pm. Hello?

Cue recorded phone call:

Hi, this is blah blah blah calling to remind you about Payless Shoe's BOGO sale going on right now!!!

Huh? What the...

I'm guessing that Payless is having a hard time selling those shoes these days and has resorted to cheap telephone calls as opposed to advertising on TV or in newspapers. Come to think of it, I can't remember the last time I saw a Payless ad on TV, can you?

Well, sorry, Payless, I'm not in the market for cheap shoes right now and if I were I don't think I'd shop at your store simply because you CALLED ME AT HOME!!!
