selective vision

first time i got a scam call on the phone by someone speaking chinese… i guess it must be mandarin but since i dont speak any chinese languages, not even my family dialect, which is hakka, it was a easy decision to put the phone down on it immediately. haha.

in all these times, i have never had a call by those people using chinese. i wonder if phone calls like this are only a phenomenon in uk…

do other countries have this same problem? i think we all here in uk must be used to these calls and like me dont even chat to them but just put the phone down on them. i dont even bother to dial 1471 to get their number to block them. i could not be bothered really. if they want to call again let them, i hope they waste a lot of their money making the call. though i think they get round that and make free calls.

ah well, another of those things in our lives that we learn to ignore. like adverts. i for one have learnt to block them out and dont even notice them now. a very useful thing to learn, to block things out selectively so u dont even see them. this applies to a lot of other things too.

i call this knack to notice things u want and to ignore those u don’t ,life skills. that way u remain focused. maybe that is why i dont have anxieties , or panic attacks, because i tune out those useless worry thoughts and ‘what ifs’ thoughts.

    We get them here in the states all the time! I hate those calls! I hang up on them and I have an iPhone so I am able to block them as soon as they call.

    oh, so the states have them too. i wonder if english speaking countries get them most. it would beinteresting to see if the countries in europe are affected too and what language they get called on.
