I got this post from My mother the other day and I thought it ranks as a quality rant while a some what short one.
I am fed up with telemarketers. Every time the Phone rings. Hello, can I speak to Mr or Mrs Arends. Last time I said NO. Mr Arends is dead and Mrs Arends doesn’t want to speak to you and I hung up. Not very nice really the poor girl was only trying to earn a living. There should be a law against this . But on the other hand we are a free country. Oh well that is my pet peeve off my mind.
Personally I can sympathize with mom’s frustration however I’m not sure that there is a need to be polite even if they are just doing their job.
the truth of the matter is that listening patiently to them is what their employers want. If no one listened would telemarketers still call and waste money paying people to annoy other people.
So Mom don’t feel sorry about hanging up, remember it is your phone your house and they have no right to take up your time.
My usual answer is “sorry your wasting my time” CLICK.
