phone conversation just now

dude on other end of phone: Hello. May I please speak to the youngest
adult male in the household who's over eighteen and registered to
vote?

me: (pause, ignoring the second clause) You could, but he's busy in
his litter box right now.

dude: (pause, same dull telemarketer drone) Are you referring to the
cat?

me: Yes.

dude: Well, I meant a human.

me: Sorry, can't help you. -click-

I'm such an asshole...

Oh, but that was cold, Belle...wish I could do that myself. :-)

One of the Obama staffers called my house this morning (it was primary day here in Louisiana) with a recorded message practically warning me about how important it was for me to get my ass out there and vote. (Well..not exactly in those exact terms.) I didn't have the heart to tell him that I couldn't vote in this one because I'm a registered Green and we didn't have a candidate. Oh, well.

That's hilarious!! :)

You're a very witty and clever woman who's obviously adept and getting rid of telemarketers.

That makes you a GODDESS, not an asshole! :)

Hilarious!

We're at the point where we let voicemail answer our landline and use our cellies only. (That's a sentence nobody would've understood 20 years ago, ain't it?)

What can I say? You're a telemarketer's nightmare.

i don't want to talk to any clone-gods EITHER. i don't CARE if i've been disfavored. if i'm disfavored, i should be on the "do not call/spam" list, even if i can't get on the "do not smite" list.

That made me laugh so much, good job on getting rid of the spammer.
