If hate talking to yakkity-yakkers on the phone and are too polite to hang up, get a baby. Babies are a great way to end a conversation, especially when you get an outsourced-telemarketing call.
An excerpt from this morning’s phone call:
“Listen, Gupta. Let’s be real here. You know and I know that your name isn’t Mark Smith.”
“No ma’am, I just wanted to let you know that our ‘Guaranteed Protection’ has a five-year-warranty…”
And this is the moment you can put the receiver to your baby’s open bleating mouth. It works!
