I am livid. I know it does me no good to become angry, but .... how stupid do they think I am?
Phone rings, waking me up from nap.
"Hi, this is John from the shipping department of [something like] Emergency Alert Services."
[My thought: I didn't order anything like that] "What?"
"You know, it's your new 'I've fallen and I can't get up' kind of system"
[RED LIGHTS OF SEVERAL KINDS GO ON: (1) I hope the company that registered that trademark doesn't find out about this scam, (2) Yeah, it's definitely a scam, why don't they just ask what model copier I allegedly ordered toner for? (3) Do I string this guy along until he asks for a credit card number so he can 'activate the service'? (4) Do I just set the phone down and let him waste his time for a few minutes? (5) Do I put on my old-fogey voice and ask 'Oh, yes, by cracky, sonny, my great-grandson said he was orderin' me one of them newfangled things, tell me more'? (6)Do I see how many indecent proposals I can make before he gives up?] "No"
"We have to know where to send..."
"No, just no!"
"Well, this order is already in the system..."
[How long is he going to try?] NO! [I hang up]
So, question: do they think that everyone in their 60's and up is incredibly stupid?
