I should feel bad...

Thursday, February 21, 2013

The poor guy was only doing his job. But they've phoned me 6 times today, never leaving a message, and it was starting to get annoying. And then there was the fact that he never said who he was calling from until about 5 minutes into the call. And that he was clearly speaking at 100mph just so I wouldn't have chance to say no thank you.

So I let him carry on, as I couldn't get a word in edgeways anyway, and made appropriate 'uh huh' noises when he paused for a millisecond. 8 minutes he kept talking... Then we got to "A set up pack will be in the post and a confirmation email on the way, okay?" Then I had to tell him. Sorry, we're an agency flat. We're not allowed to change energy suppliers.


I should feel bad, I've done telesales so I know what it's like. But somehow I just don't!

    I'm a little late on this, but I think it's funny you let him go on for 8 minutes before telling him he was wasting his time!

    I know it may be rude, but I interrupt them when they talk like that and if they don't let me speak I hang up. You are much nicer than I would have been lol.

    Telesales can be a pain especially if they call and call and call although you told them that you are not interested...

    I'm getting calls now from the university I attended soliciting alumni donations. I learned the number and I just don't pick up when I see it in the caller ID. I feel kind of bad because they make scholarship kids do the calling and I used to have to do it when I was a student. But I really don't want to talk to them (or donate money)!

    You are so nice, I just hung up on someone 5 minutes ago when I couldn't get a word in.
