Same here. But I have friends with private numbers, so I never can
tell. Chances are if I let it go through to the answering machine it's
a friend and if I pick it up it's a telemarketer.
Overseas calls are even worse. Very rarely I get calls from work so
there's always a chance it might be them. But 99.9999% of the time it's
I do pick up if I am in the mood to be rude to someone :) There's a
sort of call centre hum in the background that is a dead giveaway of a
telemarketer which means I don't even have to pause to check if it is
actually a friend before I go into "get rid of them" mode.
