Just got the best cold call ever. Here we go. Word for word:
ring ring ring ring
Hello. Is that the man of the house?
(At this point I detect the twin clues of an Indian accent and an outdated conception of gender roles, and correctly surmise that someone is trying to sell/scam me)
Hello. I am from the lifestyle research laboratory. Would you be willing to take a survey about your lifestyle? It will take only a minute and will help people.
Ok, first, will you tell me your complete postcode and house number?
(suddenly very angry)
You think you are a funny? You think you are a funny? you should be a clown, yes? You should be a clown on stage.
I am. That's exactly what I do.
You. What? You.
(He hangs up)
I cannot tell you how much pleasure this gave me.
