Why do telemarketers seem obliged to argue? What is it about "I'm not interested thank you" that is so hard to understand.
Tonight got a call which started out:
"Good Evening I am calling on behalf of ###### to offer you a deal on High Speed Internet"
"I'm not interested thank you"
"What do you currently use for internet"
"I'm not interested thank-you, I do not buy anything offered through telemarketing"
"Iam not selling sir"
"yes, you are offering me internet service and I do not buy anything offered through telemarketing or direct mail as I find those things annoying and rude"
"BUt then we will lose our jobs sir"
At that point I am afraid I got a little bit more abrupt then I should have and the line went dead. Now I understand that this is their job to make sales. But when the person says that they are not interested and that they do not buy anything offered this way do you really think arguing will help your cause?
Oh wel, at least he didn't assume I was too dim to understand what he was offering--I have had credit card sellers say that to me.
