Speaking of Telemarketers

I went over to Mama’s last night to help her get AIM set up on her computer, and a telemarketer called trying to sell some math books for kids. Mama had the woman talk to me, and I had a real good time with that. Now, I love to talk to telemarketers, but rarely have the ability to employ my rapier wit with them, because hey! I’m a mom with 8 children. Phone is not the best way to communicate with me. But I was kidless last night, and I did have fun with the gal, so I have to tell you about it. Poor thing had to talk to her supervisor about 4 times during our short call.

So, now you are thinking what I said that was so horrible, aren’t you? You are thinking I must be a horrible person. Well, I asked two basic questions with follow up.

1)If i don’t like the product and want to send it back, how do I do that. “Well, you ship it back, and we pay for it.” No postage paid envelope? How am I supposed to put a receipt in a sealed envelope? And why would I want to wait for you to send me a check?

2)What makes your 45 page math books that cost 6 dollars each any better than the hundred page math puzzle books I can buy at Walmart for $2.95? I think the gal about peed in her knickers when I told her that her books cost over 10 cents per page, and asked her if she really thought that was a good deal. Apparently, she was quite flummoxed that I could do that math in my head. Maybe she should keep the math books and use them herself, eh?
