Please just hang up…

So my job for the past month has been as a remote political fundraiser/ telemarketer. I know I know, but it’s a job okay? A paycheck that I can collect while I’m still in my pajamas. So in my opinion I’m not really good at it because everyone has a financial sob story and of course I’m always like “It’s okay, I’m so sorry, oh you poor thing!” Needless to say that this is not the response expected of me from my employer, but what are you going to do. Worse still are the very politically opinionated persons that I run across that you can literally hear the saliva exploding from their face as they work themselves up into an ever growing frenzy and want to scream at me, the schmuck on the other end of their phone line. So apparently I’m supposed to have President Trump on speed dial so that I can tell him personally what a crappy job they think he’s doing (like he would really listen to me anyway) along with Chuck Schumer, Paul Ryan and Nancy Pelosi. Why yes of course! The very next time we have afternoon tea. I promise! Give me a break people. The kindest thing you can do for a telemarketer is to just hang up, because we’re not allowed to, but we really want to. Trust me. But make sure you’ve been on the phone for at least 30 seconds though or you’ll just be logged as a redial…
