I'd just got in yesterday when the phone rang and a pleasant lady with what sounded like an Indian accent asked for me by name and gave my address. Since she had that information I waited to see what she had to say.
She went into a long a rambling account about taking medication (I'm not at the moment), the waiting times for ambulances to arrive and how worrying it might be if I fell in the shower and was unconscious and couldn't phone for help. It seemed at first as if she might be selling some sort of private medical insurance.
I went on listening and making non-committal noises. In the end it turned out that she was on about medical alert pendants.
I laughed and said that I'm not yet old or ill enough to need something like that (hopefully DH will pick me up if I fall in the shower!). Of course, she just carried on and I put the phone down.
Now where did she get my information and why are companies cold calling about things like that?
