Not today

Well, today when I answered the telephone, it was a telemarketer. Honestly, I usually wait to hear who it is, and then say "no thank you, please put me on the do not call list", and hang up immediately. Sometimes I say it nicely, but sometimes my tone is unpleasant to hear. Quelle surprise!

But today, the young man that called me hit a heartstring. He could be my child or a nephew or someones dad, out of work at his dream job and doing what he can to take care of kin 'n hearth.

I did not purchase his product, but I did thank him politely for calling, and in my heart I asked God to Bless him.

Well, the Google system ate my homework, Teacher! Grrrr...
Anyway, as I was saying, I too do the call list speech, but I admire your saying what you did!
You must have made the your man's day!

Hopefully he didn't get all bad responses that day-but it is easy to fall into when you are called too often. Margaret, thank you so much for your comments. You are a good friend.
