MY FAVORITE PET-HATE: TELE-MARKETING

(ring-ring)

Hello, is this mr. Krabat I am speaking to?
Yes it is.
I am calling to you from xxx company in Madrid. You come referred to me by a collegue in London, whom I understand you have recently spoken to in connection to talks of investment…
I have not.
You have not spoken to my collegue in London about investments?
Your collegue called me.
You have not spoken about investments?
(Looong pause, in which I refrain from repeating myself)
Ah, so, Kenneth, have you ever invested in the stockmarked?
We are not familiar, so you may address me by my last name.
Ah, okay, Mr. Krabat, have you ever invested in the stockmarked?
No I have not, and I am not interested, so please do not call me again.
(Slam, phone down, back to work)

(ring-ring)

So, why are you being so rude, Kenneth?
We are still not familiar, so you may still call me by my last name.
I can call you anything I like. So I call you prick. Because that’s what you are.
(beep beep beep)
