This morning I received a call from a telemarketer. The conversation went something like this:
Me: "Good morning. May I help you?"
Her: "Good morning, this is so-and-so from such-and-such marketing. Do you have an email address?"
Her: "May I have it?"
Me: (after a few seconds). Click.
Five seconds later the phone rings. I answer it with my customary cheerful "Good morning! May I help you?" She says: "You B*$!!! You are SO RUDE!" Hangs up. Then calls me back FIVE times. Each time I get no response to the standard greeting. Until I say, "If you keep calling I will contact the Federal Communications Commission to report you." She says: "Go ahead. GO AHEAD!" in a sing-song voice that I've only ever heard before in a school yard.
But she didn't call me back.
And she certainly isn't going to get my email address NOW! Sheesh.
