A Telephone Call..............
A couple of days ago we received a telephone call from a soft spoken but unknown (to us) gentlemen. This is the way the conversation went......

Hubby: Hello!
Caller: Says nothing
Hubby: Here, let me let you talk to my wife.
Me: Hello!
Caller: Hi, I'm so and so and I'm calling on behalf of such and such and I'd like to make you a wonderful offer today.
Me: Is that right, What you got?.
Caller: I've got a book of coupons containing a $100.00 savings from all the restraunts and businesses in your town. And all it cost's you is $39.95. You like to go out and eat don't you?.
Me: Nooooooo. I'm not interested.
Caller:Really, Why not?.
Me: Because it's safer to eat at home. I'm not interested.
Caller: Hmmmmmmmmmmm!. Continues to try and persuade me into buying the book of coupons reminding me of how much I can save when I go out to eat. You like to go out and eat don't you?.
Me: I'm not interested.
Caller: The cost to you is only $39.95.
Me: Click.

It would have been "No, thank-you", click, :x on the fifth line.

I wouldn't have waited for the fifth line.. I would have CLICKED as so as he said he had something for me.

I don't answer unless I really LIKE who ever

If I say hello and get no response right away I hang up. I have heard that they have computers doing the dialing (about 5 phones per caller) and the first takes the first number that is answered. If there is that pause, It is probably a telemarketer. That doesn't happen very often since I put all of our phone numbers (land line and cells) on the no-call list. My cell phone is for people that I want to talk to, not somebody trying to sell something or scam me.

I've heard talk of a national phone book just for cell phone numbers. If that happens I'll blow my top! :evil:

Well I got a call JUST today......

They said that this individual has tried to reach me and cant seem to. It has to do with a Hummer that I won. http://webpages.charter.net/connectingzone/happy/26.gif (ok... its a truck folks) And she told me I should give her a call and do I want the number? I asked if I could call the person Im talking with back. No sorry. I asked if the woman who tried to reach me has a email. Nope. I asked if I can speak with her manager. Nope not there.
So then I proceeded to tell her she has a BEAUTIFUL voice (which she did NOT) and that Im single but out of work and I was wondering if would would like to go out. LOL! This went round and around for 5 minutes. SHE finally hung up on ME! LOL! :lol: :lol: I enjoyed myself!
