How To Win The War Against Telemarketers, Part 3

| Working | January 14, 2014

(For some reason, I’ve been getting angry phone calls meant for someone else from an internet provider. My aunt and uncle from Oman are currently visiting when the phone rings.)

Me: “Oh… it’s [ISP] again. I’ve told them to take me off their list a dozen times.”

Aunt: “Try again. Maybe if you tell them—”

Uncle: “No. Let me.”

(My uncle answers the phone.)

Uncle: *in Arabic* “Good evening, you insane person.”

Caller: “Hi. I’m calling on behalf of [ISP]. We need to speak with [Name] at [other address] concerning—”

Uncle: *still speaking Arabic* “Why do you not listen? He is not here! I am in a kitchen! The bananas are not ripe yet. My nephew’s cat does not like me! Soccer is fun to watch. My ears are on fire! My face is made of coins! There are clocks all over the ceiling.”

Caller: *click*

(They gave up after two more similar calls!)
