I Can't Wait for Him To Call Back
You may remember this previous post where I battled a telemarketer who tried to get over on me. (You may also not care at all.)
Well, I'm pretty sure he called again today.
JERK: Who am I speaking with?
ME: (pause) This is Chris, how can I help you?
JERK: Oh, sorry. Didn't hear your name there. This is Paul calling for service with the copier.
ME: (fake surprise) Oh, are you calling from IKON?
JERK: (delighted to have tricked me) Yes!
ME: No...you're not.
Why do I know to hang up right away? Because A) IKON (our copy repair company) would have identified themselves, and B) I'm pretty sure it was Interstate Imaging, a company known for tricking people into buying toners from them and then billing them at ridiculous rates. They are cockroaches.
This would also explain why he wanted my name - so he could use that as leverage when billing us. Motherfucker.
