I was just fucking around tired of the many calls I get asking me if I want to get more medigap insurance or that hilarious thing about “your student loan”. DUDE! I am 66 and never had a student loan!
What I have been doing is just being natural and treating the callers like I know them. I look at the caller ID saying what city they are SUPPOSEDLY in and answer it with something like (for example) “Hey LA! Wassup?” So far there is ALWAYS a quick hangup or a prerecorded voice saying the same thing. CLICK!
I sometimes just answer it by treating the caller like a friend and saying, “Yo! Whatsup?” It throws them off that friendly thing. I need to experiment more on this. I am thinking that since I got time here, try to ENGAGE the caller into talking about THEIR life. Some poor bastard off in Pakistan, India or the Philippines having a hard time. “Hey, how ARE you and your family?”
As a former coworker used to say: ” Sounds like a plan!” They want to control MY time so let’s have some fun with it. At the same time I can increase the number of blocked phone numbers.
HEY MAN! WASSUP?
