Even though I'm on the do-not call list, these companies keep calling me again and again and again. I have always asked them to stop calling me, but they keep calling anyway. Also, when they come to my apartment building, they ring all the doorbells at the same time.

I couldn’t do that for a living. I’d get tongue-tied saying “Duquesne” all the time

I play with the telemarketers...String ‘em along with stupid questions. “Are you a licensed contractor?”... “How much will it cost me?” As Many questions as I can think of...

Then I ask if they are reputable?? Of course they say “yes”. Then I ask if a reputable contractor would violate the “do not call list”?

The abrupt hang-ups thrill my loins.

I tell these solar con-men that my home and all the properties around me are part of an association and that I am on the board. Not only will I never waste a dime on solar panels, I won’t sign off on the necessary design plans that any of my neighbors wanting to install them would have to submit. I can usually see them driving down the hill and out of our neighborhood after leaving my house.

The simple fact is that if your electricity bill averages more than $150/month, solar panels will pay for themselves. Your bill would be about the same, but there would not be any increase from your electric company over the life of the lease, which would be typically 20% over 6 years. That can be substantial.

I don’t trust strangers calling or visiting me about what they have to offer. Whatever their offer is, I’ll never give my credit card to a total stranger. That’s just not wise.
