Telemarketer: “Hello, this is [Big City Newspaper] and we are offering subscriptions.” *continues at length with options and pricing details* “Would you like home delivery?”

Me: “Sure.”

Telemarketer: *dead silence*

Me: “Hello? Are you still there?”

Telemarketer: “Um, yeah; it’s just that nobody ever says ’yes’ so I don’t know that part of my script.”
