At least they are usually fairly cheerful – Not this one!:
Very abrupt – Female Caller: “Can I speak to the home owner?”
Me – cheerfully – : “Why?”
Caller – now aggressive: – “Because it’s my job”
Me – still cheerful -: “And might I enquire how you think your rather abrupt manner will advance your enquiry?”
Caller – now very cross – “Are you or are you not the home owner?”
Me – now finding this funny – : “As it happens, I am”
Caller: “We have a special offer on double-glazing..”
At this point I interrupted her spiel
Me – kindly but firm – : “Young Lady – we do not require double-glazing and if we did – you would be the last person I would contemplate dealing with”
Sadly most of this was said to a dead line as she hung up!!
Hey ho – But I suppose it’s a new approach to selling!
