Credit Us With Some Common Sense

, | Working | May 6, 2015

(I am working as a receptionist and we’ve been getting a lot of telemarketers. Since the message is a recording, I had started by just ignoring it, but after receiving calls from them twice a day for two weeks, I wait through the long message to see if there was an option to opt out of the service. There is and I choose it. Instead of a message saying they’ll stop calling, I hear ringing and someone picks up.)

Telemarketer: “Hello, thank you for contacting [Credit Card Service]. How can I assist you?”

Me: “Um, I selected the recorded option for you to stop calling us. Is this the right line?”

Telemarketer: “Uh…”

Me: “You’ve been sending us recorded messages for weeks. We’re not interested in accepting credit cards. Please take us off your list.”

Telemarketer: “Are you sure? In this day and age, more people are going to have credit cards than cash. You shouldn’t limit yourself!”

Me: “We are a law office that deals with bankruptcy cases. Most of our clients are already not paying off their credit cards. Why would we want to add OURSELVES to that list?”

Telemarketer: *long pause*

Me: “Please take us off your list.”

Telemarketer: “All right, ma’am. Have a nice day!” *click*
