Keeping my US phone # active is great, but people trying to sell me something is annoying. They talk, talk and talk, but don’t listen.
“Is this number (702) … …. correct?
“Yes, but I don’t live in Vegas. I live in the Netherlands. Your call is transferred to Europe.”
“What is your address in Las Vegas where we can send this amazing offer?”
“Again, I don’t live in Vegas. I live in the Netherlands. Your call is transferred to Europe.”
“OK. Will you be in Vegas next week?”
“No. I could be there in November, not sure.”
“OK. What is your address when you’re here?”
“No idea. One of the hotels.”
“OK. Which hotel?
“No idea, it changes every time. So do room numbers.”
“OK….” (insert panic silence here)
Out of options on how to explain this peroxide-damaged lady that I’m not an American, let alone a potential customer, I did what I always do: I hung up the phone. What a relief.
Oh wait, just noticed a flashing LED on the phone signaling that I have voice mail. Sigh. Help. Please.
