Telecon

Why does Telecom think that if they send a couple of spotty youth to my door, who call me "madam", in the middle of the day, that I would change to their product?

What is their marketing team thinking?

oooh - Were they the same spotty geeks as on the Xtra ads?

The same spotty youfs work for the NZHerald up here.

Oh boy. I'm convinced they look for users of the opposition's service - they seemed to call regularly when I lived in Welly and was on TelstraClear.

Luckily they're easily dissuaded, whereas the Herald's spotty youths were annoyingly persistent when last they called.

Tinks, no sadly, if it was them I would've invited them in for a cuppa, and then made them fix all my IT problems.

Hers,perhaps it is a very jetsetting sort of career.

Stephen, I think you're onto something. They were definitely looking at our cable when I answered the door.

Yep had them here too.
Well, almost.

I saw them coming and didn't answer the door.

Do you know those spotty youths pushed the doorbell twice AND knocked twice! Persistant and spotty.

Persistent. *blush*

Martha said...

Anne, I would never have known.

Gin makes me very forgiving of such mistakes, and also I make them myself frequently.

I always want to correct them like in Ab Fab with "ouiselle! Mademoiselle!"
