I read about this website offering a service called the Rejection Hotline. You can give someone a phone number from the site and choose the rejection line you want the person to hear when they call.
So if someone asks for your phone number, instead of telling someone you’re not interested and don’t want to give them your number, you can use this service.
It seems like the easy way out to me. Why not just say no. I guess it comes back to ‘treat others how you want to be treated.’ It’s all karma in the end and what goes around does tend to come back around… If you can’t tell someone ‘No, I’m not interested’ then how will you ever deal with the big stuff when it comes around?!
