I got a call from the Verizon store in my town on my cellphone in the middle of my workday. They wanted to sell me an upgrade. I don't upgrade my phone unless my phone breaks. I don't even use all my allotted minimum balance of minutes every month. I am a complete waste of a salesperson's time, and if they'd looked at my records, they would have seen that.
So I said "take me off the list of people to call and sell stuff to, please." The customer service automaton with the perky voice said "Sure, we'll do that."
Half an hour later, I got a call from someone else at the Verizon store in my town, who wanted to sell me an upgrade.
Why is it that my autistic son can take better direction than salespeople at Verizon?
