Solicitors should not mess with these hormones

Monday my phone rang. I have this nifty thingy on my phone where when it rings a guy reads out the number calling. Yeah that helps for when I'm to lazy to pick up the handset and look caller ID. That means when I hear the little guy say 1-8 I just hang it up or ignore it, or I let Brandon answer it.

WELL! On Monday I had just gotten both boys down for their nap. I was totally tuckered out, and all I wanted was some damn breakfast. Ring ring ring. 1-888-5...I walked over to the base and pushed on and off and simply hung the phone up. Went back to making my Cream of Wheat when Ring Ring Ring 1-888-5...Again I walk over and just hang it up. I take about four steps and RING RING RING 1-888-5 OH MY FUCKING GOSH ARE YOU SERIOUS! Oh I was pissed. Here is what happened.

Shannon: Turns on phone doesn't let lady talk and says, "Are you fucking kidding me? Why the fuck are you calling my house three times in a row? I hung up on you twice, I just got two kids to sleep one of which is a fucking new born and you feel like you need to keep calling my fucking house, are you out of your mind?"

Lady: Yes this is so in so with such and such and

Shannon: ARE YOU HEARING ME I DON'T WANT TO TALK TO YOU TAKE ME OFF YOUR STUPID LIST STOP CALLING MY HOUSE YOU ARE RUDE TO CALL ME THREE TIMES IN A ROW WHEN I CLEARLY HUNG UP ON YOU!

Lady: Yes well I can remove you from my list but it takes a few days so you will continue to receive calls for a few days.

Shannon: OH MY FUCKING GOD, I SWEAR I DARE YOU TO CALL MY HOUSE AGAIN, YOU ARE MORONS, I HAVE TWO FUCKING KIDS SLEEPING, YOU ARE CALLING ME TO SELL ME SOMETHING FOR KIDS, YOU OBVIOUSLY KNOW I HAVE KIDS, WHY THE FUCK WOULD YOU CALL MY HOUSE 3 TIMES IN 2 MINUTES. ARE YOU GUYS IDIOTS OR WHAT. TAKE ME OFF YOUR LIST!

CLICK!

They just called me today! Lucky for them I was on the other line. I'm waiting for the next call, I'm feeling frisky!

That is hilarious. Ahhh. It is good to laugh. Hey, I have a question for you that I can't post (doesn't that just make everyone really want to know? sorry). Do you have an email I can get?

Kat said...

Oh yes get them. I hate it when they are cold calling. I just pick up the phone and put the receiver next to it and walk away..freaking idiots.

Oh..will you please come to my house and do this for me. I get these stupid calls too but then I end up getting sucked in. The last time they called I talked to them for so long that Quentin thought it was a friend. When I got off the phone after about 30 mintues he asked who it was and I said telemarketers and was like and you told them what we were having for dinner?

Call and get put on the Do NOT CALL list. I hate those calls. I always let it pick up on the answering machine and I keep all the ringers off except in the office.

Your so funny..thank god I don;t have to be on the other end of the phone from you.
