When it is a real person calling about my back taxes or overdue student loans, I prefer to start out with OMG! THAT SOUNDS SERIOUS! WHAT DO I DO?? Then I set the phone down and carry on about my business.
My grandson loves those calls! He will order hamburgers, French fries, etc. or talk about his day, make up crazy things. His Dad taught him well, lol.
My DH's uncle used to enjoy carrying on with those callers, pretending he knew the person. "You say you are Jennifer? Jennifer, how are you? How's your uncle? Is he still in the hospital after that horrible wreck ? " Uncle Bill would go on and on and on and eventually the caller who was trying to sell him new windows or whatever would hang up in disgust.
Marcia I love your quilt! That one is so fun and cheerful. Love the whirleygigs!
It usually only takes them 30-45 seconds to hang up, but maybe I made them miss making one other spam call.
OOOOH I like that idea! Might start doing that.
Thanks Ami. The new parents were thrilled with it and hopefully the little boy will love it as he grows.
"OMG! THAT SOUNDS SERIOUS! WHAT DO I DO?? Then I set the phone down and carry on about my business. "
LOLOLOL! that's awesome.
I did that one time when I did answer. It turned out it was my adult grandson who was in jail and needed bail money. I wondered which of my 30-year old girls had an adult son and was soooooooo devastated when I just couldn't help him. Tough love, ya know?
I haven't received the grandson call yet, but I am looking forward to it. I figure I can keep him on the phone for at least 10 minutes. That is my goal anyway. We'll see how it goes.
ETA: I think his name shall be Charlie. Or Edgar. Haven't decided yet.
How about William? "Now, William, I have told you and told you over and over again .... " LOL
Congrats on finishing your orange monster. There is a very pretty silky blue thread that came with my machine, a sample from superior threads. It might look pretty cool to have electric blue thread on that orange. If you want to try it I will stick it in the mail to you. I did some dooddling with it and did likei it.
