Let Sleeping Dogs Lie

| Working | October 14, 2013

Telemarketer: “Hello there, I am calling to see if you would like a free consultation on home alarms.”

Me: “No thanks.”

Telemarketer: “Are you sure? What happens if a robber breaks into your house?”

Me: “I will deal with that situation if and when it happens.”

Telemarketer: “Are you sure? I would get an alarm if I were you. A robber broke into my house last month and stole my dog!”

Me: “What kind of dog was it?”

Telemarketer: “…what?”

Me: “The robber stole your dog, right? What kind of dog was it?”

Telemarketer: “Oh, it was a pug!”

Me: “What was its name?”

Telemarketer: “…what?”

Me: “What. Was. Its. Name?”

Telemarketer: “Uh…”

Me: “I know you are reading off a script, so let me give you advice: if you are going to lie, come up with something believable and be ready to back your story up!”

Telemarketer: “Hey, wow thanks! So… can I sign you up for a consultation to defend your house from a robber who might steal your dog?”

Me: *click*
