A day with me

Its fun when the solicitors call my office (which is my cell phone) Call Comes in, caller goes though this long sales speal, even read off some stupid ad they had prepared,
I quietly wait till they're done (cause it would be rude to interrupt anyone), when they're done, which is about 3 minutes later - I say "I'm sorry, what dept were you trying to reach?"

I usually pull the line from Seinfeld. I tell the caller it is a bad time, but for them to give me their home number and I will call them back later tonight.
Why do people not respect us as they do other tradesmen? Because every Tom, Dick, and Harry doesn't think he can be a plumber or electrician!
