Idiot Telemarketers in Action, Part 13,772
Idiot Telemarketer: Hello, I’m calling you from the U.S. Navy Veterans Association and —
Me: Let me stop you right there and tell you to call back later, when my wife is at home. She handles all our charitable giving.
Idiot Telemarketer: Well, I’m sure that you’re the better half, and —
Me: You know what? You’ve just offended me incredibly by suggesting my wife isn’t competent to talk to you. Take me off your list and never call me back.
The organization, once again: The U.S. Navy Veterans Association, whose telemarketers, apparently, are sexist dickwads.
You know, both my father and my wife’s father were in the Navy. I’m not disinclined to support charitable organizations related to that branch of the service. However, now, not this particular one.
