My sis emailed me this so I have no clue if it is true. But is funnnnny! :D

"The phone rang as I was setting down to my anticipated evening meal, and as I answered it I was greeted with "Is this Wilhiam Wagenhoss?"

Not sounding anything like my name, I said, "Who is calling?"

The telemarketer said he was with The Rubber Band Powered Freezer Company or something like that and then I asked him if he knew Wilhiam personally and why was he calling this number.

I then said off to the side, "Get really good pictures of the body and all the blood," then turned back to the phone and
advised the caller that he had entered a murder scene and must stay on the line because we had already traced this call and he would be receiving a summons to appear in court to testify in this murder case.

I then questioned the caller at great length as to his name, address, phone number at home, at work, who he worked for, how he knew the dead guy and could he prove where he had been about one hour before he made this call. The telemarketer was getting very concerned and his answers were given in a shakey voice.

I then told him we had located his position at his work place and the police were entering the building to take him into custody. At that point I heard the phone fall and the scurrying of his running away.

My wife asked me as I returned to our table why I had tears streaming down my face and so help me, I couldn't tell her for about fifteen minutes.

My meal was cold, but after what I had pulled, very enjoyable."

ARE YOU BOTHERED BY TELEMARKETERS?

I :heart: IT!!

Actually, I am going to print it off to give a guy that plays with telemarketers all the time. Only he charges them for talking to them. On surveys, he says "sure I'll answer. Then where should I send the bill."

They always say, "What bill?" Then he says, "well, you get paid for talking to me, so I should get paid for talking to you." He says it works and he gets rid of 'em fast! :p

People have to be really desparate to work as telemarketers. I wonder what the job-turnover rate is.

Two of my daughters worked as telemarketers for a while when in college- which is always desparate days :lol: They enjoyed it- said you met some really nice and interesting people...But they were also working and selling local projects (Police Assn., Shriners, etc) and they have nice voices, are friendly, and can speak English.......

Would be perfect timing if it was a carpet cleaning service phoning!
