Telemarketing

A recent phone call...

Timepass: Hello (who is spoiling my afternoon nap??)

Telemarketer: Hello Madam, Good Afternoon
I am XXX from ABC company. We help our customers to select suitable investment schemes in Mutual funds and Bonds.

Timepass: Sorry, I am not interested.

Immediately the phone gets cut. What a polite telemarketer....

(Another caller had the courtesy to say Ok Madam before putting down the phone. I strongly feel that the above caller requires some good training in telephone and general etiquette.)

There are the other kind of people too who are not ready to listen if we are not interested and then go on talking...

LOL.I know someone who doesn;t let you open your mouth. one can only listen to her.

Looks like you are an avid reader, all your quirks are related to reading.

I have had my share of talkative marketers too...
AA-Mom: My reading is confined to newspapers, magazines and GK and history books. I am not into novels though I love to read autobiographies.
