From Ellen in England
Being a telemarketer is not a job that everyone desires. However, it does have its lighter moments.
The other day, I rang the home of Mr. and Mrs Finley Shrewsbury. Mrs. Shrewsbury answered the telephone. Our conversation happened something like this.
Me: “Good afternoon. Might I please speak with Mr. Shrewsbury?”
Mrs. Shrewsbury: “I’m sorry. Mr. Shrewsbury doesn’t live here anymore.”
Me: “Oh. I’m terribly sorry. Please forgive me. If I may ask, do you have the number where I could contact him now?”
Mrs. Shrewsbury: “Certainly.”
She gave me the number.
I was quite surprised when I rang the number.
The man on the other end answered and said, “Highpoint Cemetery. May I assist you?”
