If you have a cable landline they usually have a site where you can go in and list numbers to block. If it’s your cell there are apps that can help.

They’re free - in our case literally lowered our cable bill to have one. Don’t have a landline phone tho....

States are reopening which means even the scam callers are getting to go back to work.🤣

Serves you right for answering the first one.

If it is a landline use Nomorobo. It's a free service.

Are you sure it’s not a contact tracer who works for whatever state you’re in? Only half kidding.

Any books/self help materials for someone who is constantly worrying (and waste a lot of unnecessary time)? E.g. No matter if i pass or fail an interview, there is always something to worry about. The worrying/anxiety multiplies when I proceeded further in the interview stages. Now that I signed the offer and is pending background checks, my anxiety is off the roof as it itches closer to my starting date.

I just started a new job around a month ago at what I thought was my dream company. One of the main reasons I left my last job after 8 years was that they suddenly expected us to work weekends, despite already working 50+ hours during the week, with no extra pay or time off. My new job now told me that I’ll be expected to work 3 weekends in a row in August to cover for a coworker who is on vacation. Am I crazy for saying no? It would be 3 straight weeks with no days off and no extra pay.
