    So I've been really good about keeping my cell phone number off of marketing call lists. That's now been ruined! My mom was begging me to go look at wedding dresses back in January, so to make her happy we went to David Bridal just to get an idea of styles. (I am waiting to buy my dress a little later in the year after I've lost some weight and next Spring's styles come out.) I am very anti-DB (I like supporting the local bridal shop owners), but figured it was a good place to try on lots of different dresses. Since then, my cell phone has been getting flooded with vendor calls, telling me I've won everything under the sun. I don't care if I won a make-over from a local Mary Kay seller. Hello, I'm not even getting married in this country! Plus, aren't those make-overs always free? So I called DB two weeks ago and asked them to stop selling my info. That didn't work, so I called back yesterday. Turns out, they hadn't taken me off of their distribution list. (Shocker!) And the phone calls continue. So aggravating!!!!! I already wasn't planning on buying my dress there, but now I definitely won't.

    Ah, that's a little better.

      DB had my number and that hasn't happened to me. I bought my dress there about a month ago.

        OMG!!! DB did the exact same thing to me!!! Arghhhhhh so frustrating!!! I got the same call from a Mary Kay rep to give me a makeover. I actually took her up on it and bought some gloss It was fun and I love their lip gloss. It does totally suck that they sell your #!! Bad for business!!

          I'm on the Do Not Call list, but because I filled out DB's form, that was me voluntarily giving my phone number out. Now when a vendor calls (if I answer it) I have to ask them to put me on their do not call list. So obnoxious!

            They did this to me too but its been kind of amusing. I had one banquet hall call me and say "Have you decided where to have your reception". When I replied, "Yeah Cancun". The guy was stunned and that was the end of that. It is a bad thing about DB and does discourage some brides thats for sure.

              My husband always tells me to give them his work number (he's a highway patrolman!)

                Ha ha.. that's funny.

                I hate telemarketers. I just hang up. I feel bad though, but they never let me get a word in.
