Telemarketer Fun

Today, I got to have a little fun with a telemarketer.

I don't like to just hang up on them, but they take up so much of my time, and I'm not at all interested in their sales pitch. I listened for about five minutes today, and then I got a devious little idea. I put my ambulance pager up to the receiver, and ran a test page. It's really loud and shrill, and startles just about everyone when it goes off. Then I said, "Uh oh. Ambulance call. I'm a paramedic. Gotta go."

Now, do I have to to confession for that?

Yes, I have to admit, I had fun doing that. I've always enjoyed practical jokes, though.

I usually ask them what they're wearing. Then they hang up on me.
