Telemarketer: Hello, I am calling to talk to you about the wonderful benefits that solar panels can bring to your home…
Me, Voice as Dead as My Soul: It is blizzarding AGAIN here in Boston.
Telemarketer: I’ll call back some other time?
Me: Take us off of your list. (Hangs up phone. Trudges, once more, into the breach, to take up my shovel. Some more.)
(I am not usually so abrupt with the telemarketing trade but THAT particular call…)
