hell is for telemarketers
Everyone once in a while I get a phone call from someone trying to sell me life insurance. It is my cynical belief that these people aren't really selling life insurance at all, but are just trying to weasel my personal information out of me. Usually I hang up on them. Then I realized that this only keeps them calling back, hoping to perhaps catch me at a vulnerable time, or wear me down with persistence, hoping I'll just give in and listen to them.
I think I got rid of them last night.
The guy goes into his speech about the necessity of extra life insurance, especially during times of drastic weather. Tornadoes and hurricanes and rainstorms, oh my!
So I listen to him a minute because it was better than listening to my kids fight and finally he stops talking. I say:
Well thanks for asking, but I have no use for life insurance.
And then I closed the deal by saying "You know, the road to hell is paved with the bodies of frozen telemarketers." [which I ripped off from Good Omens]
He hung up on me. A slimy, phony, cold-calling salesdemon hung up on me.
If he calls back again, I'll just read some Dante to him.
