I don’t normally get telesales people calling me, as I’m pretty good at un/ticking the boxes, but sometimes obviously some get through the net.
Last night, I received possibly the most bizarre call ever on my mobile – caller ID says ‘Private No’.
The time: 8.47pm
Me (nervously): He-llo
Caller: Hi, is that Rob?
Me (even more nervously): Err, yes
Caller: Rob, it’s James from First Vitality
Me: Errr, hi
James: You’ve ordered Omega 3 tablets from us before, right?
Me: I don’t think so
James (flummoxed): Oh… well, do you reckon you will?
Me: Probably not
James: Well, you should, they’re really good
James: Why not check out our website for them some time…
James: Thanks, then. Bye!
End of conversation
I’m not mad, am I? That is totally shit, isn’t it? And no, I haven’t even bothered to look at the First Vitality website since.
