I Can't Believe This Just Happened

Just a little bit ago something happened. I am currently at work and while our receptionist went out to get lunch for the rest of my coworkers I was answering the phone. As usual, I received a telemarketing phone call...I answer the phone, "Companion Care Animal Clinic. This is Heidi speaking." And she starts her in on her "deal" as though she's reading a script. I'm thinking to myself "I don't have time for this" So against my better judgement I hang up. Yeah, I know, now usually I say, "I'm not interested at this time or something." But I didn't. I just hung up. Within a minute I receive another call and it's the same woman. She says, "Heidi, you're an f---ing b--ch. Didn't your mother ever teach you any manners?" Say what??? Yeah. I couldn't believe it. I just hang up again. No more calls. Now, I'm thinking to myself. "Aren't you recorded at your work and won't you get in trouble for treating your "clients" that way?" I must say I did feel slightly guilty but I can't go back on what I did and man, sometimes I get so sick of telemarketers. At the same time I remind myself that it's a job and someone's got to do it. In the end though, the Lord will bless her according to her deeds and in the meantime I get a little chuckle out of it.

AHH ha, ha, ha! I know you didn't just hang up on her! That's too funny that she called back. I hear what you're saying about, "Isn't she being recorded." I'm kind of thinking that maybe she doesn't like her telie-career. What do you think? That's priceless! I'm sorry for you getting the verbal abuse Bug...but you put a smile on my face!

We sometimes get calls like that at work and it's easily handled by saying..."This is a place of business and we don't allow solicitations... Goodbye" and then you can easily hang up without feeling guilty. You say it fast enought that they can't even start their paragraph of dialog. Sorry you were abused that was uncalled for. Have a great day. And by the way Goooo GATORS!!! Can't wait to see how it turns out tonight.
