Telephone rings, 10 a.m., I’m WFH so I answer it on the first ring. Long wait before anyone speaks so it must be a telemarketer of some kind.

Caller verifies (in a thick accent from the Indian subcontinent that makes her difficult to understand) that I am who I am.

Caller: “Do you have a washing machine in your house?”

Me: “Yep.”

Caller: “Can you tell me its make?”

Me: “Nope.”

Caller: “Is it a Hotpoint or a Samsung?”

Me: “Nope.”

Caller: “Is it a Philips or a …” etc, for several more exchanges.

Me: “Nope.”

Caller: “Why won’t you tell me the make of your washing machine?”

Me: “It’s none of your business.”

Caller: “… fine.” Click.

See, it *is* possible to get the caller to disconnect first.
