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 :rock
i know what you mean.
at my old number i kept getting calls from people who spoke Spanish all the time. it must be because of my name, but im not mexican or latino of any sort. close, but no cigar. they kept trying to sell me phone cards and crap.
i was talking to a friend of mine and he suggested answering the phone as "Hello, INS." :rofl
PS: no offence to any one of mexican, latino, or spanish decent.
I used to get stupid with them when I was in the states. I had all my numbers on the "Do Not Call" list and when I mentioned that you could hear their tone of voice change instantly:D .
Thank God in Germany they don't do that here.
