How to handle telemarketing calls: let your four-year-old talk
I am still so floored by the outpouring of comments on yesterday's post. Thanks again, all.
The following ROTFL incident happened last night, thought I'd share.
The phone rings; I notice it's a call from some random bank. Even though we put our name on the National Do Not Call Registry, we still sometimes have telemarketers hounding us. Sabrina is near the phone and picks it up. I figure, if someone's contacting us at 7:45 p.m., let them talk with her. This is what I hear:
"WHO IS THIS?!"
"WHAT DO YOU WANT? WHAT? WHAAAAAT?????"
"WHAT IS A BANK?"
"I CAN'T HEEEEEEEEEAAR YOU!"
"MY MOMMY IS IN HER PAJAMAS AND WE'RE READING BOOKS."
"DO YOU LIKE PRINCESS ARIEL? SHE'S MY FAVORITE."
From now on, Sabrina's handling all the telemarketing calls we get.
