Just when I start thinking how smart I am ~
You know the call, the one where Jessica (name changed to protect the guilty), the call where she asks "can you hear me okay?" Well, I got the call yesterday and decided to smartly say "Yes" just to hear what she had to say. You see, Jessica has been trying to get us to renew the extended warranty on a vehicle we no longer own. After I told Jessica that I was hearing her just fine, she responded by saying that this was our final call to renew our extended warranty. She then asked me to answer some questions to be sure the vehicle continued to qualify for the EW. Her first question to qualify was, "does your vehicle have less than 150,000 miles on it?"
I tried to answer the question as honestly as I could, not knowing who bought that vehicle or how they used it or how many miles it might now have, but since it has been several years with a new owner, I assumed they drove it a lot and the vehicle probably had more than 150,000 miles, so my response to Jessica was "NO." Well, hallelujah. She hung up on me. I'm thinking how smart I am. Perhaps that took care of one more nuisance phone call!
Yea! Right! Who am I kidding?
But wait......this morning I'm reading about the telephone scam where they want you to say "YES" so they can record your voice and use it later to prove that you did okay a credit card transaction. Oh, my! What have I gotten myself into.
I'll turn all this over to the HuMAN, stop answering the phone and go back to quilting. Problem solved. How smart is that?
