The secret life of telemarketers

This is an post from the olden days – read more about them here.

I am at uni right now.

The Indian girl on the computer behind me is working on her programming assignment.

She is also on her mobile phone.

"Hello, xyz from Telstra here, are you interested in Telstra broadband and Foxtel" I hear her ask. Yes, a Telemarketer at work, right behind me!

She then goes on about "are you on a plan with Optus. How long is the contract" and all that kind of crap, for two or three minutes. The guy at the other end seemed somewhat interested. Perhaps she wasn’t cold calling him, but making a follow up call.

Still, wouldn’t making telemarketing calls from your mobile cancel out any money you earn?
