This afternoon I am at my office alone. A couple other agents are out with clients and I've had clients myself today. I've juggled numerous phone calls and voice mails and emails all day. During business hours unless I am with a client I try to not miss a call. Twice today I was on the phone with a friend and got another call. Both friends know I am at work and that it's important for me to take the call so they immediately let me go.
Then when on the phone with a buyer client the phone rang and I quickly explained I was here alone and by this time I was just chatting with my client and the business was taken care of so he also let me go to take the call. Now when the caller ID said County Courthouse I truly wasn't expecting a telemarketer, but that's what I got.
They were selling magnets. You know the "endorsed" by the county courthouse ones. Yeah, what county courthouse? They were going to be "given out" by the "County Courthouse", again WHAT county court house? Apparently these folks don't know about Eatonton, GA at all. There is likely not 5 people working in the Putnam County Courthouse that I don't know personally. I went to school for 12 years with the security deputy. I taught Sunday School to the children of the Clerk of Suprior Court. I sit on the pew in church behind the Superior Court Judge, at a previous job I used to be a co-worker of the Probate Judge and I went to school with three of the four children of the tax commissioner. And that just is a sampling. I live in a small town and with one phone call I can be transfered to two dozen people in different offices in the court house. And did you know not ONE of them knows a dang thing about your "Emergency Number Magnet".
Seriously? I mean it's not a bad idea to have a magnet on the refrigerator with the numbers for the Sheriff's office, Animal Control, the health department, and of course their favorite real estate agent (me). But since you lied I think I'll just have to find another company to print them up for me. Because the people I like least in this world are liars and folks, you just got busted. I want to call them back and tel them I have free houses for them.
