Gorden Bennett, I had another one of those stupid sales calls last night, you know the ones, they phone you up and clarify who they are speaking to and try and sell you something like you are their best mate !
After a couple of seconds of his 'matey' behaviour talking about loans and the interest rate, I said ' If you are trying to sell me something I am not interested'.
To which I got the reply, 'Oh no sir I am not trying to sell anything, it is money I am offering you'.
I told him that he was trying to sell me a loan, so therefore trying to sell me something, but he persisted with the 'No sir I am not selling anything' so I hung up.
These people must think we were born yesterday.
There has to be better ways of making a living than making a complete nuisance of yourself to people.
Although there is a service to try and prevent these calls, telephone preference service (register here http://www.tpsonline.org.uk/tps/), of which I have registered, it does not prevent all calls and god knows how, but the calls still slip through.
