That’s a new one

I just had a telemarketer who claimed to be “verifying our listing” with the “yellow pages” get mad and hang up on me.

After I grunted “yes” to all of her questions and then told me she was about to transfer me to another department that would make me grunt “yes” to the same questions, I asked her why she needed me to stay on the line to verify the information she’d just asked me yet again. I told her she really didn’t need me to verify, again, information she already had and I had other things I needed to be doing.

She got all butthurt, accused me of wasting her time, and hung up on me.
