Im not sure if this is the appropriate community to post this in. If not, go ahead and delete. This conversation happened between me and a telemarketer calling me at work.


*Phone rings*
Me: (company name here)
Telemarkter moron: Can I talk to Ed Smith. (Rather garbled, I couldnt understand who they asked for)
Me: Who was that again? (no response) Hello?
TM: (Long pause) Can I talk to Ed?
Me: Last name please?
TM: mumble mumble
Me: Er...could you spell that for me?
TM: spells name
Me: We dont have anyone by that name.
TM: This may help, he is the head of engineering.
Me: We dont have anyone by that name.
TM: Could I talk to the new head of engineering?
Me: May I ask what this is in regards to?
TM: A free magazine subscription for engineers...
Me: We no longer want anymore magazines. (We really dont, they clutter up the mailbox, and no one reads them.)
TM: Well, can you transfer me to Ed so I can ask him if he wants it?
Me: HE DOESNT WORK HERE!
TM: May I talk to the head of engineering?
Me: WE DONT WANT ANYMORE MAGAZINES.
TM: Starts to ask to talk to head of engineering.
Me: CLICK.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! Get it through your thick skull, Ed doesnt work here, and Im not going to let you talk to the head of engineering! No, I dont feel bad about hanging up on you!!!! My co-workers in the next cubicle were telling me to do it. I should have sooner.

*Deep breaths*
