I just found out about something from our land line phone carrier and the best thing, it's free for landlines.

Takes a bit to get it set up, but so worth it.

    What's a landline?
    I think that's a nautical term. Isn't it? The line you use to tie your boat up to the dock or whatever.

    Something I can't convince the old lady we do not need.
    “It has been a source of great pain to me to have met with so many among [my] opponents who had not the liberality to distinguish between political and social opposition; who transferred at once to the person, the hatred they bore to his political opinions.” —Thomas Jefferson (1808)

    Thanks, @0patience , where I live cell phones don't usually pick up.  I also still use the woodstove occasionally, and have a hand operated coffee grinder for the frequent electricity outages.

    1. Robots have rights too.
    2. I dislike phones of any kind.
    3. Drums, smoke signals, yelling and carrier pigeons work just as well in this modern     era.

    I get a kick out of figuring out some of the robocalls. For example, one that I used to get (before I got the app to block 'em) started out with my phone ringing. I learned that I should answer "Hello" one time and then wait. If you wait long enough, you get logged as an answering robot and they don't call again. But if you say "Hello" a second time they know they've connected with a human and they'll continue calling your number. 

    Another one that's cute goes like this: your phone rings and you say hello just once and wait. After a few seconds a female voice says "Oh, hi. I was just having a problem with my headset". This is supposed to make you think you're talking to a real human. If you say a word, you're cooked. 

    Yet another one goes:  your phone rings and you say hello. The voice on the other end asks "Is Fred there?"  You say there's no one by that name at this number. Then they say "Oh, well, as long as I have you on the line have you heard about our wonderful special price on ....... (whatever). Again, you're cooked - because they know a human answers this number and they'll call it again.... ad infinitum. 

    Ain't life fun??  :p

    Since getting this set up, we haven't had one robo call. 
    In fact, the phone only rang once since then and it was the pharmacy.
