Trump Telemarketing

| Working | November 11, 2016

(My parents immigrated to the US a few years before my sister and I were born and went through all the red tape to get their citizenship legally. Even though it’s been twenty plus years my mom still speaks with an accent and some broken English when stressed. One afternoon a telemarketer calls and my mom, in a hurry to go pick up my youngest sister from school, answers without looking at the caller ID.)

Mom: “Hello?

Telemarketer: “Hello, are you interesting in improving your home security?”

Mom: “No, thank you, ma’am. Can you please no call here? Good bye.”

(Not a minute later the telemarketer called back, but this time got the answering machine. She screamed and cussed at my mom for hanging up; she then started threatening to call immigration and get her “Mexican a**” deported. My older sister called the company back later and reported the woman. I’m not a hateful person, but I hope she was fired.)
