I get calls from people that go like this:
Caller: Hello, this is XXXXX calling for YYYYYY
Me: What are you selling?
Caller: I’m not selling anything, I just want to inform you about…
Me: Call me back when you’re willing to admit you’re selling something (and then I hang up)
(I would still hang up on them even if they admit they’re selling something)
Anyway, is this some industry standard now? Every damn one of them always say “sir, I’m not selling anything”. Do they actually think that this works? Does it work on some folks and then before they know it they’ve bought something?
