Erin Mitchell wanted uplifting stuff today. I’m waiting for a call and so I can’t ignore the phone, like I usually do. I just answered.
Guy: is this Mrs McRoberts?
Me: Is this a cold call?
Guy: Yes
Me: You should probably just move on to the next name on your list.
Guy: Oh, okay. Sorry to bother you.
Me: OH MY GOD. Thank you for being so nice.
Guy: Thank *you*. Makes a change. Have a nice day.
Me: You too. Bye, now.
The cynic in me thinks it might be his first day and he’ll be sacked by lunchtime, but still.

    1. I seldom get the chance to be nice. They usually lie when I ask if it’s a cold call. One notable one said he didn’t know what “cold call” meant. That was surreal.

  1. How nice you are! Do you think in the US people are generally nicer to strangers, eg cold callers? Or are they more aggressive? We rarely get them, thank goodness. Our house phone is for emergencies and my parents! (It annoys me on TV when people always use a mobile at home, even years ago when it was extortionate and everyone still had landlines. Short rant!)
