Courtesy Call

Ring, ring... ring, ring..

"Good morning Random Bank, Sheila speaking,"

"Oh good morning, how are you today?"

"Fine thank you madam, what can I do for you?"

"Oh this is just a courtesy call to see how you are doing"

"I'm sorry madam, you must have dialled the wrong number, this number is for customer enquiries only,"  I am detecting a hint of irritation in her voice.

"Yes I know, I'm a customer just enquiring how you are doing, a courtesy call, so how are you my dear, any issues?"

"Is there something you wanted madam our lines are very busy at the moment?"  She's not a happy bunny.

"Well I haven't heard from you for... oh all of a week I just wanted to check that you hadn't lost my number, got a little fed up with repeating the same conversation over, and over, and over again or been offended by my putting the phone down on you last time. Well if you are sure I can't be of further assistance I need to go, very busy woman, oh I think I've just found some fluff in my navel."  Click.

This is St Jude Mmr, Cjd, Nut, Dip Py, until my next little cultural experiment signing off.



  1. Please say you really did this. I hate telemarkters and robots calling me.

    I love technology but some of it sucks.

    1. Oh Bill you have a lot to learn about me. Yes it's all true. Perhaps you would like to check out the tab 'batteries not included' honest I did that too.

  2. How wonderful to have you back blogging again! So many of the old guard have stopped for one reason or another. I shall go and move you out of the AWOL category and back into Home Baking :)

  3. Glad you are back and that was funny.

  4. It is nice to awake to a warm chuckle this early Sunday morning.

  5. She's back... she's gone... she's back... Hope you're back for good now.

    I would dearly love to try something like this. Or even have a smart answer for when the cold calls come in. Not sure if I'd dare!
