Sales Call

The other day I was taking it easy at the store when the telephone rang. It was a stockbroker trying to sell me some investments. "I have some fantastic stocks and bonds for you, sir. They are must have instruments for a long term investor like yourself," he told me. "I am too old for long-term investments, young man," I said and since I had nothing else to do, I decided to hear him out. "That is OK sir because I have the right investment for you. These are high quality instruments generating very high returns, ensuring that you'll live like a king in your many years of retirement," the man said. I wanted to test him more so I said, "I won't have a long retirement because I am seriously ill and doctors have given me only two or three more weeks to live." He did not even wait a second to digest the gravity of my statement, and continued, "Do not worry sir, I have just the right stock for you and people in your position with a real tight timetable. I promise you that this stock will double if not triple in value in just a few weeks. You will be leaving with the knowledge that your loved ones are very well provided for. He was too good for me and I decided to throw in the towel. "There's someone at the door and I need go now" and as a joke I added, "it's probably the mortician who's come to measure me." Without missing a beat he replied, "I 'll hold sir, just put your mortician on 'cause you can't believe the fantastic investment I have for him."

I hung up.

i am so glad you won the war (and the battles too.)

I think they are little pests and should be treated as such. They always call at the very worst time possible. As if they are waiting out of your house and are watching you through the windows and when the very worst time to call arrives, they say, "yes lets do it now!"

Some of this sales calls are unbelievable until they happen to you.

I am a tough cookie and I always get the last laugh with these sales calls.

I used to get calls about selling me a burial plot every year. Talk about eerie! My family is a little superstitious and did not like it at all.

I just had a lot of fun talking to these people. I have not gotten a call in two years now. :o) I wonder why? hahahahaha
