Among the numerous calls for Credit Card, Debit Cards, Personal Loans, deliberate wrong numbers by guys and other calls that I get, yesterday I got a telecall of a different nature:
Me: No this is “Miss” XYZ
Caller: Oh sorry Sir!
Me: Never mind. What do you want?

Me: Well…right now I am not interested in a change…

Me: Thank you for your interest, but right now I am quite happy where I am…
Caller: This is a big opportunity for career advancement Sir!!
Me ( cutting in) : How did you get my number?
Caller: From your resume Sir!
Me: How did you get my resume?
Caller: From a job site madam.
Me: But I do not have my resume on any of the job sites!
Caller: errr I don’t know Sir from where our procurement team got your resume. But this is just the opening for someone like you!
Me: What do you mean someone like me?
Caller: Someone with your kind of experience and job profile. We have short listed your resume after careful consideration Madam.
Me: Really? And on what basis did you select my resume. Eenie Meenie Minee Mo method? Heh heh
Caller: No ma, our Procurement Team works with our Internal Process Team to ensure a perfect match!!
Me: Oh ok!
Caller: And money is not a problem here. You can earn upto a crore a year!
Me: Which company is this? The Grand Bank Robbery Inc? ha ha...
Caller: No Sir. It is ABC Life.
Me: %#$*#$ *SLAM*
I hope ABC Life Insurance has its a**e covered with it’s most Premium A**e Covering Scheme because if I get one more call from their Placement Agency and I will sue them to kingdom come.
What next? Telecallers from Matrimonial Bureaus? I wouldn’t be surprised if we get a call like this in the future!
Caller: Miss ABC are you single?
Caller: Are you planning to get married anytime soon?
Caller: In that case we have an exciting and promising proposal for you. He is 5 feet 11 inches tall, MBA, wheatish complexion and a teetotaler. Doesn’t smoke, is God fearing…..
The future is so bright for telecallers. *groan*
