There actually are robot callers that can respond exactly like that. If you're not sure whether it's real or not, try asking it, "Say something totally nonsensical to prove you're not a robot." The robots will fake-laugh and say, "I'm a real person!" A real person will say, "What do mean? Like, 'This morning I found a meteorite in my toothpaste' or something?" Or else you can say, "This morning I found a meteorite in my toothpaste. You ever hear of that?" A real person will hang up or say, "A *what* in your toothpaste?" The robot will fake-laugh and politely say something about not understanding.

Of course, that's all if you have the patience and care about whether it's a robot. I always think it would be fun to play with them, but when I do get a call, I'm always in the middle of something so I just hang up as soon as I realize it's a sales call.

Great response by you. I think I would have kept smiling the rest of the day, as this was so funny. Hope it was a computer generated message or else some firm is really hurting for clients.

Now that was funny.

I kinda feel bad for the people who are hired to call people with a sales pitch like that. I'm sure they are reading from a script. I can't image doing that job. I'd go insane. the stress of being yelled up, hung up on, etc... is brutal. I know, I've worked a help desk.

This so funny, and I am sure true.

We get a lots of telemarketing calls in my area for duct cleaning. My friend said she answered once, that she didn't have any ducts (ducks) but she had some geese that she would love to have cleaned. the line went dead.

I answered the phone on one of the nursing units at the hospital I work at saying : Pediatrics, This is LadyCJM, how may I help you?

Caller: Hi I'm calling from ABC mortgage and we would like to talk to you about our new lower interest rates. We can offer you 3% on a mortgage of 300K.

Me: Thanks, but this is a hospital.

Caller: Well I'm sure if you needed a larger amount to re-fi your property that we could accommodate your needs with a low interest rates and no points.

Me; Sir, this is a hospital, I do NOT own this property.

Caller: Oh, you rent? We are always happy to help out first time buyers, in fact we have a special deal right now where we can roll your closing costs into the loan so you won't need to put any money down.

Me: Well that sounds wonderful.

Caller: That's great, We can easily qualify you for 300K.

Me: I think this property is worth much then that.

Caller: Oh, how much more?

Me: Well, there are 3 main buildings and about a dozen smaller buildings, plus there is a heliport.

Caller: We could arrange for someone to come out and assess the property and then we can decide on the value of the loan.

Me: Wow that would be terrific. Send them by anytime, We are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Tell them to ask for the CFO. Have a nice day!

I swear I was talking to a computer that was responding to key words! Had to be...right? I mean, no one would really try to sell me a mortgage on a hospital...right??? LOL I laughed for the rest of the day.
