Caller: Hiiii! Is Husband there?
Me: He’s unavailable but I can take a message.
Caller: Is this Mrs.StarTrek?
Me: It is. How can I help you?
Caller: Hiiii! I’m Some Name from Some Shady Sounding Company! We know your area got a lot of hail damage last night and we’re in your area doing roof inspections today. Can I put you down for a free roof inspection, Mrs. StarTrek?
Caller: But..what if your roof is damaged? You’d wanna know if your roof was damaged, right?
Me: Look, thanks for calling but please just take us off your list. If our roof is damaged, I’m sure we’ll figure it out sooner or later and deal with it then.
Caller; But we can come to your home TODAY and let you know that your roof is damaged. Then Shady Sounding Company can fix it for you for the low low price of $$$$!
Me: Take us off your list please.
Caller: You are being SO rude. We’re just trying to HELP you here.
Me: You can HELP me by taking me off your list.
Caller: FINE! (phone slams down)
We’ve also gotten three people coming to knock on the door. I just open the door, let them go through their spiel and then point at the “No Soliciting” sign on the door and shut the door in their face. One guy had the nerve to say “BUT I HAVE A PERMIT!” before I shut the door. I don’t care if you have a permit or not. I’m past the point where I care if it’s rude or not. GO AWAY. IF we want your help, we’ll call you. Capische?
