I must have a real reputation among the Telemarketers.
I just got one then and the call went like this:
The phone rang, I answered and said hello... and waited (the usual delay to let you know you're about to speak to a Telemarketer) and on comes the TM.
"Hello my name is Gordon."
"Hello" I reply.
"I was wondering if I could... "
Then he hung up.
Was he so scared that he had to disconnect before we even began combat?
Did he give up before he even started, knowing my reputation?
Did he feel some sense of victory by hanging up of his own volition instead of hanging up on me later out of sheer frustration?
Maybe his shift ended precisely at 5pm?
