Of course, you actually have to talk to a human instead of a robot | I DON'T KNOW WHAT ALL THE FUSS IS ABOUT TELEMARKETERS YOU JUST HAVE TO BE PREPARED TO SPEAK IN A MANNER THEY CAN UNDERSTAND | image tagged in telemarketers,revenge | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
Good work! I usually use speech bubbles, but I didn't put them in the template so people could have more free flowing conversations. Not everyone has a folder of transparent speech bubbles like I do.

Your use of story here is perfect. The coffee drinker is always in a funk, usually about his home life, and the cigar guy is always his avid active listener, asking the important questions. It's nice to see he got the chance to do the punch line.

But every time I look at the front pages my skin crawls and I realize it takes a certain degree of sh!t-a$$ crazy to wade into that mire. :P

You're gonna make yourself old before your time if you keep letting yourself get stressed out over it. :-)

Actually I DON'T get stressed out about it, that's why I keep wading back in. I do have a tough hide. But looking at what's expressed out in public right here on the flip, all the racist and sexist pablum and whacked-out conspiracy theories, it makes me fear a little for the future mental health of the country. That said, I am an optimist. The nutjobs won't win out for long. It's just a bit of a hard slog for the immediate future. And I always have good users like you to come back when the war wounds sting a bit too much. I do worry about Octavia though; one of these days he's gonna get a whuppin' and I'll have to jump in after him. XD

But some of those political apples have been rotting on the ground and stink to hell. :D I figure you can debate your way around fine, but sometimes I'll see an argument on your profile, look it up on the original, and wonder 'what the f#ck is doing debating THAT troglodyte???' XD And I was using artistic license in my discussion with giveuahint. ;)

Ha ha ha ha ha! :-D

I was a telemarketer in a prior life.

Once a 'prospective customer' told me to go f#ck myself. I said, "Now I can't wait to get home"

Another one said he was going to slash my tires - so I described my bosses car.

My boss would routinely call me in the office and play back the recorded conversations. And sometimes laugh! Those were the days. :-)

I guess it could be fun and frustrating to be one, but as someone on the other end of the line, it's only been frustrating. :-)

Agreed. Telemarketing should not exist. ;-)
