someone trying to sell some timesharing thingy called me last week. he irritated the hell out of me when he kept referring to me as "Madam" not only once, but at least 5 times in the entire conversation.
when i declined his invitation, he gasped in shock, "but why, madam? you're the first to say no! everyone i called said yes, madam."
"firstly, it's because you keep calling me madam."
"secondly, i don't have a family to bring to that whatever that is."
"thirdly ... not interested la."
then the guy says, "oh, so sorry, ma... i mean, MISS, blah blah blah."
"oh, and how the heck did you get my number????" i snarled.
i so hate these random calls. i know that they're doing their job but gawd, they always call at the wrong time!
