Try This On A Telemarketer

The phone rang as I was setting down to my anticipated evening meal and, as I answered it, I was greeted with " is this Wilhiam Wagenhoss" not sounding anything like my name, so I said who is calling?

The telemarketer said he was with The Rubber Band Powered Freezer Company or something like that and then I asked him if he knew Wilhiam personally and why was he calling this number.

I then said off to the side, "get really good pictures of the body and all the blood" then turned back to the phone and advised the caller that he had entered a murder scene and must stay on the line because we had already traced this call and he would be receiving a summons to appear in the local courthouse to testify in this murder case.

I then questioned the caller at great length as to his name, address, phone number at home, at work, who he worked for, how he knew the dead guy and could he prove where he had been about one hour before he made this call.

The telemarketer was getting very concerned and his answers were given in a shaky voice. I then told him we had located his position at his work place and the police were entering the building to take him into custody, at that point I heard the phone fall and the scurrying of his running away.

My wife asked me as I returned to our table why I had tears streaming down my face and so help me, I couldn't tell her for about fifteen minutes. My meal was cold, but very enjoyable.

I recieved this in an email. Those of you who know me, you know why you're laughing harder than the average person. For those of you who don't, I used to be a telemarketer myself. Have a good one.
