ME: (Hoping it's a long distance friend but fully aware it's probably a telemarketer) Hello?
TELEMARKETER: Good afternoon, can I please speak to Mr. or Mrs. Z?
ME: (Annoyed, but resigned to making sure it's not actually something important) Speaking.
TELEMARKETER: This is a courtesy call. I'm calling from XYZ Foods. We're a wholesale grocery delivery company specializing in delivering fresh produce and groceries directly to your door. Families typically save anywhere from 20 - 30% off of their regular weekly shopping bill by using our convenient delivery service.
ME: (Having resisted the urge to simply hang up, which is my normal reaction to telemarketers, I find myself actually interested in finding out more about XYZ and have decided to ask if they'll send me information or can direct me to their website).
TELEMARKETER: Do you have three or more people in your home that you shop for on a weekly basis?
ME: (Wondering why this matters) No.
TELEMARKETER: Thank you for your time. *CLICK*
ME: (Staring blankly at the receiver, I am aghast that this woman has hung up on me because I only shop for two. As I slowly hang up the phone I want to cry. I don't, but I want to.).
So yeah, this is why I hang up on telemarketers.
