"Don't worry, I'm not selling anything..."
Thursday, October 30, 2008
"Good afternoon I am Paul Anderson calling from the Industry Directory and don't worry, I am not doing Telemarketing I am not trying to sell you something. I just want to ask you a few questions for a quick survey."
"Isn't a survey marketing?"
"No I am not selling anything."
"But if you're taking a survey, you're doing marketing?"
"No we just want to ask some questions so we can get a feel for the... (I bet he was about to say "market") business. I just want your approximate answers."
"Are you working?"
"Maybe, maybe not."
"What is your occupation?"
"I'm in the industry."
"Ah, if I told you, that would be a precise answer. You wanted approximate answers."
