Sales Call

A word-for-word transcript of a call that took place in my home last week: 

“Hello, may I speak to Shelly’s parent?”

“Excuse me?”

“May I please speak to Shelly’s parent?”

“Well, Shelly’s parents live in Arizona.”


“Uh. Oh, really? Do you take care of Shelly?”

“Yes, you could say that. I definitely take care of Shelly. Shelly is almost 50 years old.”

Silence again.

Deep breath.

“Well, my name is Greg, and I’m calling from the SAT prep program.”
