Not In The Telemarket For This Kind Of Thing

, | Working | April 25, 2016

(I am at my parents’ place, waiting for a call to let me know that my mom is out of surgery. Because the cellphone reception is lousy at the house, I also give the doctors the landline number just in case. Sure enough, the landline rings around the time I’m expecting to hear from them, so I pick up.)

Me: “Hello?”

Telemarketer: “Hi, this is [Name] from Customer Service. Can you hear me?”

Me: “I… I’m sorry, who is—”

Telemarketer: “Okay, great! Did you know that…”

Me: “Are you f****** kidding me?!”

(I hung up. It turned out it was a recorded telemarketer message meant to trick me into thinking it was a live person. Goes to show that even if the phone number has your area code, don’t always trust it!)
