I despise telemarketers. They call and try to foist useless junk on
me. Even worse are the telescammers. They call to supposedly â€ślower
the interest rate on your current credit cardâ€ť or to warn me that my
automobile warranty is about to expire.
Today the phone rang and call ID said the call was from Opa Locka FL,
(305) 620-2238. I know from past experience that calling that number
leads to a recording that the number is no longer in service.
I answered it, time to have some fun. â€śâ€¦automobile warranty is about
to expireâ€¦this is your last warning before you are taken off our list.
Press 1 to speak to a representative, press 2 to be removed from our
call list.â€ť I've tried option #2 about eight times, they still call.
I'm guessing they are more aggressively calling those who actually
listened to their recording long enough to press 2. I pressed one.
A pleasant young southern female voice greeted me, â€śHow are you doing
I answered â€śI'm doing well.â€ť
â€śJust to be sure we are talking about the same vehicle, could you give
me the vehicle identification number from your current vehicleâ€ť she
â€śSure, where would I get that number?â€ť I asked.
â€śIt will be on your registration or our insurance ID cardâ€ť she
â€śOK, let me go get it, I'll be right back.â€ť
My phone has a call timer on it, and I spent the next nine minutes and
fifty seconds listening to the woman talk to her female co-worker. I
learned that her Uncle, her Brother and her Mother all have birthdays
this weekend, and they planned to have a big party. I also learned
that she was trying to lose weight and had lost almost eight pounds,
but felt her buttocks was no smaller for it. I heard a male voice in
the background swearing vehemently at someone.
At about the four-minute mark it sounded like her supervisor came by
to prompt her into getting to work. â€śDon't worry, I'm one call short
of quota for the week and I KNOW I'm going to score with this one,
heâ€™s gone to his van to get me the VIN number!â€ť
At about the nine and a half minute mark her co-worker suggested â€śI
think Iâ€™ve called this guy before, heâ€™s just wasting your time.â€ť â€śNo,
I'm sure I've got this one hooked!â€ť she replied.
At ten minutes and a few seconds she inquired, â€śAre you there?â€ť
I replied, â€śYes, hi there!â€ť
â€śDid you get the VIN number for me?â€ť she asked.
I answered, â€śWell, I was right in the middle of something when you
called, so if you could help me finish real quick, then I can go get
â€śSure sugar, what do you need?â€ť she inquired?
â€śCould you, uhhhhhhhhhhh, describe your breasts for me?â€ť I sighed into
â€śOH MY GOD!â€ť She screeched and hung up the phone.
They haven't called back yet. I look forward to their next call.
