C'mon, Baby

"You know you want it."

This is what I heard a man saying when I answered my phone this morning. The caller turned out to be a phone banker calling for the American Association of University Women (AAUW) membership renewal drive.

(Apparently, he was talking to a coworker when I picked up the phone. Regardless, I'm betting the guy was a paid employee, rather than a volunteer, passionately devoted to the cause.)

Aren't those the best!?

I called a church one day and heard something like "ugh, the phone keeps ringing!"

I pay close attention to how I answer the phone both at work and home now.

See, I would have been totally tempted to turn that phone call x-rated just for the hope that a supervisor was listening that would have gotten him fired.

"You know you want it."

"Why yes, I do want it. Why don't you tell me all about how much I want it! Better yet, let me tell YOU how much I want it!"

Rob, that's bad! How do you not notice when you pick up the phone?! (Excepting fancy phone bank software, of course)

CCW, I know! It could hardly have been any funnier, except perhaps if he'd been calling from Planned Parenthood.

Deb, I'm totally laughing at the idea of an x-rated conversation including the phrase, "better yet!"

This is priceless! (snort)
