#15. Edentate (toothless) tiger – ΩΩ
TELEMARKETER: “Hello, my name is Sally/Sid from Stellar—”
ME: Interrupt forcefully emphasising the telemarketer’s name. “Sally, Sally, how many times do I have to tell you Sally? I don’t know where you left your dentures, and you can’t borrow mine. Just suck soup till you can see the dentist.” Then cradle the phone.
Key: Do not listen to the telemarketer’s attempt to correct you, as Sid or Sally may disrupt you. Be forceful in your interruption of the cold caller, state their name strongly, then quickly and emphatically say what you have to and get off the line.
