Telemarketer: 1 Alex: 1

I got a call from this number which I’ve been missing for a while now. Picked it up, and it was a telemarketer of sorts from Optus.

My house gets bad reception so I was sort of running around trying to get reception while she talked to me. I missed about half a sentence so I said, “I’m sorry I have bad reception I can’t hear you.” She replied back, “I can hear you perfectly.”

I suppose all those hang ups have made her cynical and straightforward. I should give her that point.

However, since we’ve been getting Chinese telemarketers, the next time I get one and I accidentally respond in Chinese, I’ll say, “Sorry I don’t speak Japanese.” And hang up. Sure, I’m being racist toward my own people, but I’m allowed to be.
