If I ever attend a focus group in California, I’ll have to look this guy up – since I supposedly know him so well.
I have to give this guy credit. It took me about five minutes to get my recorder up and running, all the while he was just waiting. I had to get him to start his schpeel while I rebooted the program. Then he stayed on the phone for a good fifteen minutes or so after that. I’m surprised he didn’t catch on when I asked him if they do Hot-dog delivery. But when I demonstrated that I am interested in what he is trying to sell me, I found a way to get him to offer me an eleven cent rebate… well… sort of.
You have to listen at the very end – after I hang up. I think the guy’s cough is a cover for his laughter. I’m quite sure I made his day.
They FINALLY called again! Those wonderful telemarketer friends of mine, oh, how I love it when they call. As with most of the other times, this was totally adlib – which is kind of obvious as I bumble at the beginning with useless displays of idiocy. But when the kids started crying in the background, it sparked an idea…
Hooda thunk? My old buddy from high school called! Okay, so he thought I thought he was an old buddy…
Okay, I think this is my record time – one minute thirty seconds. But I think the “stalkemarketer” was convinced I was sincere.
Hooray! Another Telemarketer called! As usual, this was totally on the spot. I started with one idea, which flopped pretty quick. The rest of the time I bumbled along, but I think I’m pleased with the result.
I love telemarketer calls – I really do. I wish they would call every day. That would brighten my day every day. It’s a great opportunity to give some random person out there a great story to tell all their friends at work.
