I was just stepping into the shower this morning when my SO handed me the
phone, telling me it was someone from a long distance company. I was eager
to get into the shower; my conversation went like this:
Him: Hello, sir. I'm from <Major long distance carrier>. How would
you like to save money off your long distance calling?
Me: If I told you that I was very happy with my current carrier, would
that preclude any further conversation?
Him: Actually, no, sir. I have to hear a certain number of "no's" before
I let you go.
Me: No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.
Him: Have a nice day, sir. <Click>
