How To Win The War Against Telemarketers Without Even Trying

| Working | July 9, 2017

(At my home, I often get phone calls from telemarketers who want to sell me stuff. I think it’s annoying, yet I’m polite with them. I’m having lunch and my cat is playing on the floor. She recently had surgery, which has made her stomach more sensitive, and the veterinarian told me I have to pay attention to what she eats. As she’s my first cat ever, I get worried whenever she tries to eat anything that’s not cat food. Suddenly the phone rings and I get up.)

Me: “Hello.”

Telemarketer: “Hello, I’m [Telemarketer] from [Insurance Company]. I’m phoning you…”

(Suddenly, my cat jumps onto the table and sniffs the spicy food in my plate.)

Me: “WAIT! Two seconds!”

(I leave the phone, grab my cat, and put her back onto the floor. Then I walk back to the phone within a few seconds, ready to listen politely and to tell the lady I’m not interested.)

Me: “Hello?”

(She hung up. I guess I won a battle against telemarketers without even meaning it!)
