How To Get Rid Of A Telemarketer - Lesson No. 3

Phone rang last night. Dinner was being served.

"Hello. Helloooo?"
Click, background voices evident. "Good evening, sir. How are you this evening?"
"Fine. How are you? Are you calling me from a telemarketing centre?"
"No, sir."
"You're not a telemarketer then? Would you like to know what I'm having for dinner?"
"How can I join you for dinner, sir? I'm not in your house?"
"I didn't ask you to join me for dinner I asked you if you would like to know what I'm having for dinner. You've called me as dinner is being served. Obviously you have something very, very important to say or should I just hang up?"
A short pause ensued then beep, beep, beep, beep....

I didn't even have to bother hanging up as she did. Can't have been important.

Maybe she is getting nothing but mush. I know they do not pay them well. Gill

Not at that job it sucks. Only if someone is dumb they make a buck or two.

Where is the opportunity to improve yourself and grow? Maybe you can move to group leader, stalker, hitman and right up to spy but I don't see many job opportunities.
