so, for the past week, we have been receiving a call at our house, and the number that shows up on the caller ID is a 1800, toll free number. the normal routine is just pick up the phone and hang up. well, i kinda got sick of it, so i picked it up one time, said hello. now its not a person on the other end, it detects when you say anything, then it says "all our agents are unavailable, please hold shortly." So, like an idiot, i decided to hold. Then, some retard picks up the phone and says "hello?" kind of like, omg, did someone really answer? I say... "yes...?"
Oh, hi, is XXXXX XXXX there?(that happens to be my brother)
Me: Whos calling?
Me: From where...???
Her: Im calling on behalf of a personal business matter.
Me: ok, hold on a second.
i go to my brother, he was actually just stepping out, hey, do you wanna just tell these people to stop calling? He says, naah i really dont want to deal with them right now...
Ok, i got it
Me: I think you have the wrong number.
Her: This is not the home of XXXX XXXXX?
Her: Ok, sorry to bother you
worked like a charm
