For example, while I was at work a woman called me up and asked to speak to the business owner.
Of course, I am the business owner.
She told me that I could save, like, seven cents every hour on my electricity bill, and I could switch service providers like that, and isn’t that great? I told her I wasn’t interested. She asked me, “You’re not interested in saving yourself and your business money?” And I told her no, I wasn’t interested; I already have enough money.
Complete silence. For ten or so whole seconds.
“You don’t want to save money?”
“Don’t you understand that this is a great offer?” etcetera.
Well, yeah, but I have more money than I need. I should start digitising some cash, my wallet is so bulky. I mean, my car is a Hyundai, man.
I eventually had to hang up on the poor woman, but the lesson was learned. No telemarketers have called us since.
