Stealth Telemarketers

So it seems the new thing is for telemarketer gimps to phone and say they’re from a legitimate institution like your bank or medical aid firm, and then try to sell you some useless piece of shit you don’t need. Now when I get a call from my bank I panic, because I think someone has stolen all my money or I’ve just violated my overdraft without realising it. And since they always phone me at work I drop whatever I’m doing and completely lose my concentration to pay attention, only to realise they’re wasting my time, but by then it’s too late and I’ll waste another half an hour trying to get back up to speed with my work.May rabid squirrels attack their nuts!
