We can save you money...
My phone contract is up for renewal in about ten days' time which means I am now getting a load of calls from folks who don't actually give a fuck about my loyalty or my talk plan or my hands free wi-fi experience. And they don't call from my network provider anyhow. Two such calls today and I am politely working fast to close the call down without hanging up (I did 6 months on the phones once and it's a fag).
They are persistent and go into 'objection handling' about three times, and then by the fourth go they show their hand (i.e that they don't give a fuck) then just hang up immediately and hassle the next person on the list.
The fellas today were only doing a job but it's still tedious to get their false bonhomie.
The fella today showed his hand early on by telling me the I-phone, in which I have a passing interest 'is no good, mate'. I reckon 3 million shipped so far says different.
