My phone has been ringing off the hook today, it’s mostly project related, but as I was drinking my loc-cal, low-carb, high-fiber, low-fat, high-fructose, medium-sodium partially homogenized somewhat carbonized coffee beverage, the phone rang, my caller-id let me know the call was from those oh-so helpful people at ‘WindowWizards’, usually I would ignore such a blatant sales call, but I happen to be in the market for replacement windows, so I picked the call up.
CALLER: “hello, sir, my name is, because I made him cry, let’s just call him OMIT, from WindowWizards, I’m authorized to offer you our top quality double sash replacement windows at slightly above factory cost. That’s 50% off our normal price”
S: Really!! only slightly above, who do I have to talk too, to get them actually AT factory prices?
S: no I’m serious, whom do I have to talk to, to get them AT factory prices, maybe the person who authorize you?
O: Who sir?
S: Let’s review shall we, you’re OMIT and you’ve been authorized… you said that didn’t you.
O: Well, yes I suppose I did.
S: There MUST be someone there who has the power to drop the price TO factory prices. Let me talk to them, I’ll wait.
O: Sir, There isn’t any such person.
S: But you presented yourself as ‘Authorized’ was that a lie OMIT?
S: OMIT it’s really simple either you’re ‘Authorized’ or you’re not.. are you.
O: it says I am sir.
S: But your not aware of whom ‘Authorized’ you? Perhaps it happened spontaneously?
O: Sir I don’t think anyone ‘Authorized’ me, I just am, it’s part of the job.
S: Hmm.. so can you lower the price TO factory prices?
O: No sir but I am Authorized to offer…
S: I think we’ve adequately determined that your not Authorized, but the script obviously is, click.
So there you have it, OMIT hung up on me, and I really wanted to hear about the windows, but I couldn’t get past the fact that OMIT was spontaneously authorized, maybe it comes from working for a wizard?
