I Wish Telemarketers Would Call More Often!


Seriously.

When I saw the phone number 123-4567 on the Caller ID this evening, I knew that I was going to be in for some fun.

Me: “Hello?”

<silence>

Me: “Hello-o, is anybody there?”

<click><pop><throat clear>

Telemarketer: “Good Evening Sir, you are on the short list to receive a Camera Phone”

(Short List?  Really?  That’s the best pickup line the telemarketer could muster?)

Me: “Just a second…”

<handing the phone to my 4-year-old daughter>

Me: “Honey, it’s Grandma on the phone.  She wants to talk to you!”

Daughter 1: “GRANDMA!!!”

My first daughter talked on the phone for a minute or two, before the telemarketer convinced her that she needed to talk to Mommy.  I intervened, and handed the phone to Daughter 2, and told her that Grandma wanted to talk to her. After my second daughter shared her day at school with “Grandma”, we handed the phone off to my 3 year old son, who got a big kick out of describing what we were having for dinner.

To her credit, the Telemarketer stayed on the line for over FOUR minutes, trying to convince them that she needed to talk to mommy.

Good times  🙂
