I don’t like telephone solicitation.

But that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy it.


Telephone rings

Me: Hello?

Solicitor: Hello, I’m from Hearing Solutions.

Me: Who?

Solicitor: Is there anyone in your family who may be hard of hearing?

Me: What?

Solicitor: This is Nathan calling to help.

Me: “Satan calling from hell?”

Pause – Dial Tone

Me: Heh-heh.

  1. Your story got me chuckling, Mitch. Hopefully my TRUE story will have the same effect? I recently got a call from “Microsoft Tech Support”. Well this scammer (likely from India) told me my PC was badly infected and he could purge the virus. He then told me to boot up my PC (I found it hard not to LOL… since I own a Mac). That’s when I turned the tables on him. I told him that I’d been having so much trouble with “my infected PC” that, in a fit of anger, I’d smashed it with a sledgehammer. I then asked him if I swept up all the debris and shipped it to him… would he be able to fix my PC.? I have not (knock on wood) heard from “Tech Support” since.
