For some reason I started thinking about telemarketing calls today. I recall when I was in college we would get calls all the time to change our long distance service. One afternoon after getting such a call I said to the salesperson “You want me to change phone companies as often as I change my underwear. We’ll I got news for ya! I’m not changing my underwear anymore.” I barely got through it without laughing, then slammed the phone down as me and some friends busted out in laughter. I found it to be a good stress relief.
Another time a friend of mine answered the phone, and a telemarketer asked for me. I was in the restroom at the time so she said “Sorry, he’s in the bathroom taking a huge dump right now.”
I recommend that if you get such phone calls you try something similar; but please continue to change your underwear.
