Telemarketing sucks.



“Good evening! Is Mr. Ordoveza in?” (My uncle, not me.)

“Not right now, sorry. Who’s calling?”

“This is (unintelligible) Publisher’s House. Could you get a pen and paper and take this Very Important Message?”

“Pen and paper… pen and paper… (Sincere rummaging) Can’t seem to find any… just a moment… ”

“Fine, be that way. You just threw away his million dollars.” CLICK.

My yelled response censored for your protection.

Well, I just got my first taste of American phone spam. No, it was not good for me.

    If your uncle has an answering machine, I’d suggest letting it pick up. Then all you have to do is listen as its taking the message and only pick up if it’s for you.

    I hardly ever answer the phone here in my parents’ house. Unfortunately, the answering machine is all the way downstairs… *sigh*

    You should be ashamed of yourself. I can’t even begin to imagine what you uncle could have done with all that money. ;-)
