Wow. I think she actually believed me! Thought it took some explaining to help her understand what a black hole is, and that I was taken by aliens. I almost felt bad when she actually sounded convinced!
“You know how I was just saying that I see ghosts? Well, I’m seeing one now.”
“Don’t worry, the bayonets won’t hurt you. They’re not physical – they’re metaphysical”
“I could be wrong, but I think it’s a monkey.”
All I can say about this one is HOLY SHAMOLY! He let me drag him on for 45 minutes! That’s by FAR my record. I recommend listening to the whole thing, but in case you’re short on time, I made an abridged – highlights only version. Either way, enjoy! And if you can put a warning out on all your social networks about the whole drive through conspiracy, I’ll be so appreciative that I might even give you a gift certificate for the Roadkill Cafe. If you’re a senior, I’ll make it for the Business After 50 Cafe.
Sheesh! What does it take to find out how to get a balloon ride?
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…
Jenni called me at work, and Lunch Bucket begged for the chance to talk to me. After about five minutes, I realized it would be fun to record the rest of the call, so I did. This is about half of the call.
