For years my private “rule” has been:
Well … today it announced a call from “….
myself … my phone number …” in the correct words, of course. Countless possibilities dashed across my mind while picking up the handset … but naturally, it was spam …. (First mistake of the day, here. …. Next time, FOLLOW my own rules!)
You’ve all heard it before as well … It’s your final notice! We have important info about your credit cards … blah, blah, blah.
I was invested now.
Already broke my own rule … committed to sharing some ruffled feathers now.
Wait a few minutes for the “representative” to answer.
I ask for his supervisor.
Supervisor answered before the expected 10-minute wait while they probably laughed hysterically! Wow!
I was not harsh at all … just firm. “I stayed on the line to complain about the unethical method you’re using for these calls. Your caller i.d. claimed to be ‘me’ calling from my own phone number. That is unethical .. wrong .. and I want my number removed from your calling list.”
Supervisor: “Well, we are in Afghanistan, so our number does not show up correctly.”
Me: “It doesn’t matter where you are … that is unethical business practice.”
Supv.: “But ma’am, we’re in Afghanistan. The numbers are different here.”
Me: I interrupted him here …. I don’t care where you are. I’m complaining about the practice of identifying your company with my own information.
Supervisor: Go _ _ _ _ yourself. We’re in Afghanistan so it doesn’t matter!
Me: What a shame.
Supervisor: Go _ _ _ _ yourself, lady.
Do Not Answer that Phone Call from Yourself!
How sad that people in 2015 live in such ignorance.
So moving on to much sweeter deals that make a stamper smile …
