    The phone rang a while ago, and the caller ID said "Wireless Caller," which we generally don't answer. However, my mom decided to have a blond moment and did, then handed it to me and said it was for me. When I got it, the guy asked how my day was and all this crap and I just answered him. He told me he was from the Marines and asked me what I wanted to do after High School, and I said I wanted to go into film editing, which he said was similar to some editing they do in the Marines (total BS). He then asked to set up a meeting with me tomorrow, and I told him I'd be working on a project for school and couldn't so that I'd call him back. After that, he asks me tons of personal questions (ranging from "Where were you born?" to "Have you ever done illegal drugs of any kind?"). I answered them all honestly, which takes about ten minutes, and he told me I was eligible to join. Then he asks if he can call me same time tomorrow, and I say okay and hang up.

    This feels so unsettling, I was just telling this guy I never knew all this stuff about me, and wasn't prepared at all to say no. I'm usually so blunt, but this guy just had such a way of talking and I'm always bent on being polite (despite what an asshole I can be, my manners are a little too good), I just kept telling him about me even though I didn't want to. I know it seems babyish to get upset over this (and there will probably be a stupid mockery sooner or later), but it's just making me feel really insecure. Why are they allowed to do this?

    Well you know what; I would have hung up, im serious. I have no interest in talking to people like that and its easier to just hang up then to say your not interested. I have no clue why you chose to stay on the line answering questions when you weren't interested in joining the Marines.......

    My mom already answered and gave it to me, I had no idea who it was at first so I started talking. I never hang up on people, heck, even when I've said bye to someone I usually wait for them to hang up first, it's odd. I would've right when I got the phone if I was expecting it.

    Besides, I didn't want to look like I was scared... not that that's any excuse. I sort of have a chicken problem.

    Well MM I know what ya mean here it is impolite to hang up on someone but if this was a marine then you should of said "I'm sorry i fell uncomfortable asking these questions. I have to go now my parents want me" something like that works alot.

    Its okay. Ive fallen for that crap too, people wanting to take "surveys" and asking if you can answer a shit load of true and false questions about drinking laws and crap. Ive taken that survey like 3 times because I just cant hang up But if it was something about the marines, or people bugging me about college I would have just hung up.

    Telemarketers already gave me the amazing ability of hanging up, but usually whoever answers those hang up. I guess the real problem was my mom answering it, then handing it to me.

    Hell no, the whole time I was thinking if he asked, I wouldn't (hopefully I could've held up to that), and thankfully he didn't.

    Mostly like where I was born, if I was involved in illegal activity, what college I plan to attend, etc.
