Just as adding Palin to the Republican ticket has brought us all comic relief, I find the unwitting telemarketers who are unfortunate enough to dial my number left in as much shock as we are over Palin or laughing until they wet their knickers.
A poor chap just called asking me if I was interested in a new phone service, which offers lower rates for calls across Canada and the US.
My calm response was:
"Thank you... but I don't use the phone."
"Yes maam.. you use the Internet."
Silence, followed by:
"Ok. Thank you maam."
You are more than welcome. And stop calling me. And even more urgent, stop calling me 'maam,' F*@kface!
