To try and improve my life, I am trying to answer the phone on more than a Friday.
The bad thing about this, is if I answer the homephone, unless my partner is just finishing work, then it will be some sort of a cold call.
I know this because only 2 people have the landline, one is me and the other is my partner.
This afternoon the phone rang, my partner is in the kitchen cooking lunch. So I know its not him.
I answer it, this is how the conversation went
Voice: Hello this is Brian
Me: <sigh> Yep
Brian: I am phoning with regards to the accident you have had
Me: Nop not been in an accident
Brian: Maybe your partner
Me: Nop but I can check
Me: Baby have you been in accident
Me: Nop no accidents happening here
Brian: It was when you had a bump in your car
Me: No car in the household
Brian: I mean when you were in the taxi
Me: Don’t do taxis
Brian: Maybe the bus
Me: Don’t do buses
brian: It must be your family member
Me: No, he doesn’t drive, doesn’t take taxis or the bus
Brian: Maybe we have a wrong number
Me: you don’t say, well take me off your database so I don’t get called again please. Oh and who did sell you this number?
