So I got a recorded telemarketing call just now. Instead of hanging up like I usually do, I put the phone down and decided to wait it out. Every few minutes I would pick up the phone and see if I was still being pitched to.

Yep, still babbling. He sounds so friendly.

More web-surfing, desk cleaning, wall-staring, and then I check again. It seems like he’s wrapping up when I hear something about, “…to be on our ‘do not call’ list, please press 8 to be transferred to our marketing removal department”. What’s this?! I press 8 more firmly than probably necessary, and hear how they’re very sorry for bothering me, my number is being removed from the system. Who says unemployed people can’t be productive?
