I pick up the phone AT MY HOME, and say, “Hello. Hello? Hello?”
Only to be met with a recorded voice, telling me that THEIR TELEMARKETERS are all busy right now and to please hold the line.
Let me try and ingest this one more time. You call my home, unsolicited, make me run across the house to grab the phone, and you’re trying to sell me something, but when I pick up, you tell me to HOLD THE LINE?
This happens, by the way, at least three times a week. Not to mention the other unsolicited calls. Those poor people who have to actually MAKE those calls. Er, wait…computers and previously recorded messages make those calls. Oh.
