Telemarketer Fun

One thing that has always bugged me, and Im sure it does most of you, is to sit down at the dinner table only to be interrupted by a phone call from a telemarketer. I decided, on one such occasion, to try to be as irritating to them as they were to me. This particular call happened to be from AT&T and it went something like this:Me: HelloAT&T: Hello, this is AT&T…Me: Is this AT&T?AT&T: Yes, this is AT&T…Me: This is AT&T?AT&T: Yes This is AT&T…Me: Is this AT&T?AT&T: YES! This is AT&T, may I speak to Mr. Byron please?Me: May I ask who is calling?AT&T: This is AT&T.Me: OK, hold on.At this point I put the phone down for a solid 5 minutes thinking that, surely, this person would have hung up the phone. I ate my salad. Much to my
surprise, when I picked up the receiver, they were still waiting.Me: Hello?AT&T: Is this Mr. Byron?Me: May I ask who is calling please?AT&T: Yes this is AT&T…Me: Is this AT&T?AT&T: Yes this is AT&T…Me: The phone company?AT&T: Yes sir.Me: I thought you said this was AT&T.AT&T: Yes sir, we are a phone company.Me: I already have a phone.AT&T: We arent selling phones today Mr. Byron. We would like to offer you 10 cents a minute, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.Me: Now, thats 10 cents a minute 24 hours a day?AT&T: (getting a little excited at this point by my interest) Yes, Sir, thats right! 24 hours a day!Me: Now, thats 10 cents a minute 24 hours a day?AT&T: Thats right.Me: 365 days a year?AT&T: Yes sir.Me: I am definitely interested in that! Wow!!! Thats amazing!AT&T: We think so!Me: Thats quite a sum of money!AT&T: Yes sir, its amazing how it adds up.Me: OK, so will you send me checks weekly, monthly or just one big one at the end of the year for the full $52,560, and if you send an annual check, can I get a cash advance?AT&T: Excuse me?Me: You know, the 10 cents a min
