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.
