Telemarketer's Question Answered Promptly
This struck me as a very strange request and rather impersonal so I responded with, "No" and hung up.
If you don't even know who you're calling just make sure it's not me. Sounded dodgy like they were going to ask to change my phone service provider or similar.

Coincidence? Bit weird? Yes.
Lack of Respect or Lack of Self Respect?
"Would you have three dollars that you could give me?" she asked.
"No, sorry." I said.
As she walked off she said, quite loudly, "That was f$%#ing rude."
So the missus and I yelled back with, "Yes, you were. Why do you just expect us to give you money? Do you know us?"
Her retort was, "Go back home." Obviously directed at my wife.
Unfortunately all I could think of in return was, "Go back to jail" when I really should have said that I obviously pay her Centrelink benefits so why should I be expected to give her money as well. It wasn't as if she looked homeless but she certainly sounded like a smoker/drinker.
Was it a lack of respect or lack of self respect? The nerve of some people. She fully expected us to give her the money and was shocked when we refused.
