I know most people don’t care for telemarketers but I believe that it’s always best to put yourself in someone else’s shoes before making judgements about a person. And that’s why when I get a call from a telemarketer, I set my egg timer for 30 minutes and then do my very best to be exceedingly polite and to try to get to know them as a real person and to say yes to everything they ask until the buzzer goes off and then once the buzzer goes off, I scream real loud, and tell them that my kitchen is on fire and I have to hang up.

John Hartnett and the Monkey Bellhop
I've always depended upon the kindness of strangers because as long as you don't know their names or where they live, you never have to spend money on thank you notes or gifts. Not much to tell, really. When I was born, my parents placed me in a small wooden boat and pushed me out into the center of the Pulaski Skyway where I was rescued and ultimately raised by a pair of opposums. Sadly, they died when I was very young. At least I think they died. From there I joined the Merchant Marines and was the only toddler in World War II to sink a Japanese battleship while being burped. When I returned to the states, I got a job at Gimbels Department Store and have been there ever since even though they went out of business in 1986. I have always valued loyalty over money and if that's wrong, talk to my wife. You'd get along famously.
