Today’s telemarketer is Albert, but he says I can call him Al.
Al says I sound “truthfully, truly” happy this morning.
“It’s Tuesday, I love Tuesday,” I say.
“I love Tuesday too! Truthfully, truly I do. But you know some people are grumpy because if it’s not Friday, they’re not happy. People need something to look forward to.”
“Like the end of this call?”
“I’ll be truthfully, truly brief.”
“I’ll be honest.”
“Landscaping,” Al says.
And with that, the breath of fresh air that was Albert “Al” The Telemarketer disappears from the line. He was a truthfully, truly good talker, but his leads were shit.
