I do some part time work for a guy who enjoys being somewhat obnoxious.
So last week I was at his house, doing some work when he took a phone call.
He said Umm hmmm, yes, yes, I see - (then he put the call on speaker phone - it was a CC compnay offering to lower his rate)
He continued No, I would not be interested in lowering my interest rate. I am doing OK and I want to do my part to help others and the economy so can I get my interest rate RAISED by One Percent?

poor girl was flustered and repeated her *lower your interest rate* script - along with * i don;t think we raise rates, sir.
He repeated his I'll see that and Raise me one, maybe a supervisor could help me

So a supervisor gets on and the poor man was equally confused and confessed that had no sytem in place to raise one's interest rate at the consumer's request...but he would transfer him to *his supervisor* ...and then the call was disconnected.

peace & poking back
