Call Me Do Not, Call You I Will

Tonight, a call from one of those annoying telemarketers, I received. Irritated I was. Watching my favorite Mary Kate and Ashley movie I was. The one where they go to Paris, it was. No wait, the one where to Rome they go, it was. Tell the difference between their movies I cannot. Anyway, interrupt me this telemarketer person did. Supposed to get these calls I am not. On the "Call Do Not" list I am.

Like this the conversation went:

"Hello, is Mr. Mace Window there?"

"If Mace Windu you mean, not here he is."

"I'm sorry, did you say he is there?"

"No, not here he is."

"He is there?"

"No! Not here he is. Speak English you do not?"

"I don't what?"

"Speak English."

"I'm sorry. Are you saying I don't speak English?"

"No, a question that was."

"What was?"

"'Speak English you do not?'!"

"Oh, wait I understand. You're trying to tell me you don't speak English. One of my co-workers speaks Spanish. I'll get her on the phone."

"No, wait!" I said, but too late it was.

The rest of the conversation I spent saying, "Español, no hablo... Inglés hablo... ¿Inglés, Usted habla?... No, una pregunta, eso era."

Annoyed in two languages I was!

Have you tried handing the phone to chewie?

I get a lot of these on the Enterprise. We are about to be invaded by aliens and a call comes through asking if we would like new windows fitted to our starship.

You have my sympathies.

More annoying is when you answer the phone and it's a recording asking you to hold on so they can sell you windows.

Put Anakin on the phone, his voice would shut them up for awhile *giggles*

Coulnd't annoyance lead to the dark side?

Hmm..I've got to agree with Obi-wanon this one. If you handed the phone to Chewie I'm sure you'd freak them out..either that or they might actually be able to understand him.

I like messing with telemarketers. If someone asks me if someone's here, I say, "No, he's dead." Or I start asking them what they're wearing, or something like that.

Why didn't you use your Jedi mind powers? Very effective on the weak minded I hear they are.

 

Blogger Master Yoda said ... (5:22 PM) : 

guinistasia,

Know did you, that a lot like that girl from Titanic you look?

Uncanny, the resemblence is.

Bang the headset of the phone on the counter, you should.

Breathe heavily, like you have asthma and you are hooked on a ventilator, and tell them that you are their father.

A friend of mine has a very good way to get rid of telemarketers. She picks up the phone and says "Deja Vu, we strip 'em you tip 'em!" They are very fast to hang up...of course, she accidently said it to her priest a time or two...

One of my favorite telemarketer scumbags is a guy named Richard Salvador aka Richard Dunbar of Great Northwest Advertising (http://www.penslinger.net). Richard spoofs his caller id using http://www.spoofcard.com. Richard served 5 years (was sentenced to 9) for his part in one of the nations largest telemarketing scams in U.S. history. He was targeting and ripping off senior citizens. The FBI sting operation was called "operation disconnect" and another called "senior sentinal". Richard routinely threatens to kill people. Customers, competitors, empolyees etc. He likes to record himself doing so using spoofcards recording features. Richard recently put his 14 year old daughter in the hospital. Apparently he considers himself a big martial arts action hero with over 4 MONTHS of extensive training. His ex wife and daughter are now in hiding. He uses methamphetamines and steroids. He was kicked out of the U.S. Marine Corps for selling dope. Check out Richard threatening to bash peoples skulls open and shoot his competitors in the head:

Richard lives at 4149 Ridgewood Ave.
Bellingham, WA
Home:360-714-0038
Cell:360-820-8220
He is currently a felon with an extensive stolen firearms collection.
If there was an award for stupidity, this guy would be the world champion.

Not to belittle peoples frustration over unwanted phone calls, but this guys is a major threat to society. Drugs, murder, child abuse... the list goes on. This sorry excuse for a human being needs to be eliminated for the sake of humanity.
