Telemarketers have a job to do. They are also not easy people to get off the phone when you really want to be, say, doing anything else than hearing about insulation.
Whether they’re asking about your current phone plan, or gauging your interest in getting life insurance, these phonecalls can be challenging. The worst part? The best telemarketers are like Energiser bunnies that never say die.
They’re persistent. And for the most part, they can be somewhat annoying.
As soon as you think to yourself, “Oh, how very lovely! My life has been blissfully uninterrupted by questions about my water and gas bills!” – BAM – a telemarketer calls and keeps you on the line until your afternoon and entire week is ruined. I swear, telemarketers are psychic. They are secret psychics.
You only need to watch this clip from The Simpsons to feel the emotional trauma of having a telemarketer call (post continues after video).
