Too many solicitors call woman's home phone

Editor, the Advocate:
Does anyone else have this problem?
I have a lot of brush around my house, and am thinking about using it - as every time I go to the "john," my phone seems to ring - and it goes something like this:
"Dorothy, do you have Medicare?" I say, "Yes."
"Well, do you have arthritis?" I say, "Yes."
"Well, you need a brace; it won't cost you anything ... etc., etc."
This and other callers trying to sell me everything from soup to hay.
I pay for my phone, and every Tom, Dick and Harry uses it free of cost. Maybe I should not use the "brush" or the "john" - just send my underwear to the laundry and let all these "trying to sell me something" people pay my bill!
I don't beat around the bush; I tell it like it is.
