Business As Usual

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 21 June 2021, runaround.

I’d been waiting on hold for a while,
When I’m told I will need to redial,
Where nobody replied,
So I hung up, goodbye,
If my call was important, why rile?

  1. Nice one! This is the same BS that I have experienced. Once a salesman kept calling and one time I was so fed up and bored I answered and put the phone on speaker. He gave me his pitch and at the end is politely asked for clarification on the beginning. He then repeated the same. I asked a few more questions for the same. Then I told him that I would feel more comfortable if I spoke to his supervisor before making a purchase. I then asked his supervisor the same questions. He answered them and I said could you please take me off the calling list. You have been wasting my time for weeks now. How do you like it? Well I got cussed out and hung up on. I had the last laugh after that one. Oh yeah, they never called back after that either.
