Bill Doskoch: Media, BPS*, Film, Minutiae

Curated knowledge, trenchant insights & witty bon mots

That was one faux-charming telemarketer

“Hi, is this … Bill Dopkotch?” (female)

Me (tonelessly, physically stiffening as I suspect I'm now about to have precious seconds of my life pissed away by a telemarketer): Yes

“How are you!!” (very bubbly in tone)

Me (continuing with the toneless voice): Fine

“You have a great voice!!” (almost flirty)

Me (losing patience): Who are you and why are you calling?

“I'm calling on behalf of the Association of Retired Gazelle Gutters, and …”

Me (with a bit of an “a-HA!”-driven inflection): “Thanks very much for calling!”
