This morning I received an unsolicited call. Here is how it went down:
Telemarketer: May I speak to ****?
Me: There is no one here by that name.
Telemarketer: Please allow 48 hours for your number to be removed from our list. Thank you and have a good day.
Me: Thank you, have a good weekend.
Telemarketer: Thank you, have a good holiday.
Me: Thank you, have a good month.
That is how it is done. I cannot be out "niced" by anyone, especially on the phone.
