Doug, Doug, call me back I need your help....

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty AR LLC PB00068179

After this they haven't called back.  Maybe they are getting the message,  Should they call back again I'm redy.  A little humor for you on this day of Thanksgiving


"Hello sir, this is Doug. I’m calling about a problem you’re having with your computer." And today I'm ready for him and I interrupt him before he has a chance to take a breath. "I'm not really having any trouble with my computer but I'm having trouble with my dog. She's pooping out bubbles. Do you think she could have gotten into the dish liquid or have you ever heard of that before? Maybe since you work with computers you could look that up for me. Her name is Jessie and I swear, she goes out to do her business and it's like one of them bubble machines you get at Walmart for a kids birthday party." "Sir, I'm not equipped to help you with that. I'm calling to help you with a problem you're having with YOUR computer," says the man with the heavy Eastern European accent. "No, no, no. My computer is fine but I need some help with this dog. The neighbors have started sending their kids over thinking were having a party. I don't mind the kids but it just isn’t right to be accepting presents when we aren’t even having a party, just a dog with bowel problems. Now Doug, can you help me or not?" Click. "Doug? Doug? Are you there Doug?"

Hi James Dray - this is the way to handle these "special" callers.  Instead of hanging up, sufficate them with kindness and make a game of it. See how long you can keep them hanging on.  My husband is so proud, he had one hang on for  13 minutes by telling him that the computer continues to crash and he is so thankful they have called to help him out. Just wait another minute while it boots up. !!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

Haha, I like how you handled that.  I am sure Doug has moved on and is bothering someone else.  Happy Thanksgiving to you my friend!

James Dray,  it seems you have this telemarketing problem all worked out. This last conversation with Doug was funny!  Have a feeling your phone number is now formally deleted from their  list.  Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day, my friend.

Why don't you just block his number so he can't call you again? That's usually what I do. But that was cute, James. I liked it!!!
