A few minutes ago I got a call from a telemarketer. Isn't it just amazing how you can almost hear the pages of the script ruffling on the other end? ; )As soon as she started her pitch, from ATT Universal--something about saving money on groceries, I interrupted her and said, "You're from what company?" This immediately rattled her as she was forced to deviate from the script."ATT Universal, sir.""And you said your name is...""<insert her name>"(I'm writing all this down)"Okay, (her name), I assume you have a don't call list?""Yes sir, but it takes 6-8 weeks until it's activated.""I see. Please put me on that list. And you have a written policy that you can send me regarding the don't call list?""Uh...yes. Sir.""Okay, let's see. It's 8:30 here now, so I'm marking down your name, and your company and that you'll be sending me the written policy regarding the don't call list. Is that correct?""Uh, yes sir.""Thank you. Goodbye."I never had such fun with a telemarketer. My wife was absolutely hysterical listening to this, and even more hysterical when I explained why I HOPE they continue to call me. ; )Tony...but I still am...Off2Aruba
