Rage Against The Machine, Part 9

, , , , | Right | April 25, 2022

A few years ago, when I was still in college, I had to spend a total of eight hours making cold calls, conducting surveys, and gathering data from willing participants, as part of a school project. I know how annoying they are and, just like the other students, I didn’t want to do it, but unfortunately, it was mandatory. It is also worth noting that I am very vocally expressive.

I had several funny conversations, but this was one of my favorites.

Me: “Hello, this is [My Name]. I’m calling on behalf of [University Program]. Would you be available to complete a quick survey regarding [subject]?”

Callee: *To someone else in the room* “Oh, it’s just a robot.”

Me: *Laughs* “I can assure you, ma’am, I’m not a robot.”

Callee: “Are you sure? You sound like one.”

Me: “Yes, ma’am. I’m sure that I am, in fact, a person.”

Callee: “Hmm, no, you’re a robot.” *Click*

I guess I just sounded too cheerful to be a real person!
