Off Limits

Is there any privacy left in this country?

It has been established here that I have a work and sleep schedule that is the opposite of most people.  I was dozing the other day, when my phone's text alert went off.  It was an organization, working on behalf of a congressional candidate, asking for my vote.

I can't mute the phone due to family and work responsibilities.

I won't mention the candidate of the organization's name, and I'll sanitize what comes next. 

I texted back a few choice words and added the text would guarantee my vote for the candidate's opponent.  I'm serious.

It's a lesson for telemarketers, candidates and other political organizations.  Please, leave me alone.
