So the Wife and I driving heading home last night when my cell phone rang. I checked the caller ID. "Unavailable."
"Hello?" I asked.
"Is this Mr. (unintelligible) Rahib?" came a woman's voice. Maybe she said "Rahim," I couldn't be sure.
I paused for half-a-second. "You've got the wrong number."
That wasn't good enough, it seems: "Are you a homeowner?"
Now, I'm really unhappy.
"My name isn't Rahib or whatever it was you said."
"I asked if you were a homeowner."
Now, I'm really, really unhappy. "Don't call this number again. Put me on your Do Not Call list."
And I hung up.
And I was really, really, really unhappy.
I don't know if little Miss Salesgirl will call back. But I want to be ready for her if she does.
I'm looking for some suggestions here. Nice and polite is optional.
