Yesterday I got a call, and I tried my standard line "I'm on the DO NOT CALL list, please put me on yours."
Well, Kimmy wasn't having any part of that; she started arguing with me.
"Ma'am (!), I am not calling you from a list."
I tried again, and she said, "I'm not calling you from no list."
She said NO LIST?!?!?! Wow. She must have barely passed the colloquial entrance test to telemarketing school.
So I said, "Please put me on your do not call list."
I was very calm. This usually works and they apologize for the inconvenience.
Not Kimmy! She said, "I don't have a do not call list."
I said, "Start one," and hung up. Then I gave the phone the finger, for good measure.
