Journalists

There are two types of journalists:

1) those whom I tolerate.

2) those who call and wake me up at 8:30 am with the same old stupid questions after obviously having done little to no previous research.

But it's all good... I'm glad I got up early. I'm more productive when I don't oversleep.

What really bugs me though is all the sales calls I get... AT&T Long Distance and Meet the Need Foundation just don't give up. Every day it's one of them.

"Hi, this is Karen with Meet the Need Foundat---"

"Hi, this is Brad. You can start by meeting my need and stop calling me every fucking two days. Bye."


I wish. Today was my last friendly hang-up. Next time they'll get that.

I did like the girl calling about windows the other day, though. She had a cute voice:

"Hello, sir, can I ask what type of windows you have?"

"Glass."

*chuckle* "Well, yeah, but are they single pane or double pane?"

"I don't know."

"Well, are they aluminum or wood [somethingsomething]?"

"I don't know."

"Well, what's around them?"

"White."

...


That went on for about 10 minutes before I got bored.
