Don't you hate it when the phone rings and wakes you up...

and it's one of those telemarketers?

This isn't another thread about telemarketers...I know we've already had one of those in the past...just those pesky phone calls that wake you up!


[ABEL still in bed, the phone rings]

me, half asleep answers the phone

Me: Hello?

hears no answer...was too sleepy to realize it was a telemarketing call right away and says hello again

Me: Hello?

Telemarketer: Yes, may I speak to Ms. ABEL? (of course she didn't say Ms. ABEL, but y'all don't know my last name )

Me: Speaking

Telemarketer: Hello, Ms. ABEL...this is Bank One, have you finished your Christmas shopping yet?

I know they're going to try to sell me a credit card, so I respond:

Me: I'm not interested

Telemarketer: You're not interested in Christmas or Bank One?

Me: Bank One

Telemarketer: (now she's laughing and says) ok, Thank you!

I hear her laughing as I hang up the phone...She didn't even keep trying to sell me the credit card like they normally say "But mam..." I think she was laughing too hard, lol!

it was probably me who said it was a hard job. i worked as a telemarketer for the local newspaper. i was supposed to be there for a month before they decide to keep me permanent. they dumped my ass after a week and a half. it was a hard job and would never recommend that job to anyone unless that person enjoys verbal abuse from people they don't know.

I cant stand them!! I'm on some serious calling lists too. I usually dont answer them when I see that on my Caller ID - but I dont always think right away! I love when they cant pronounce my last name - which is very likely in the top 5 most common names in the country! Or when I tell them I'm not home, they ask when "he" will be back. Or they ask for my husband, which I dont yet have. And the list goes on!

Abel,

I think I called you the other night by mistake and hung up, sorry.

Post your phone number so I won't do it by mistake, again.
