mister sister

Just answered the phone.

Me: Hello

Caller: Is A---- in? (Name of one of the Sisters I live with).

Me: No she's not, can I take a message?

Caller: How about Mister Sister?

Me: Excuse me?

Caller: How about Mister Sister? Is he in?

Me: No there isn't one - no Mister Sister here (trying not to laugh).

Caller: Oh .... (hangs up)

You can't make this stuff up! Got to love (or not love) telemarketers.....

My husband took one once--one of those RIGHT NOW URGENT AT DINNERTIME calls. Now, there are times when my dear husband right now at dinnertime wants nothing less that--well, dinner, without which he has been known to be somewhat grumpy. Andon this particular occasion he was having to cook it himself and it was not going smoothly.

Caller: Would you like to save money on your long distance calls?

Hubby: ABSOLUTELY NOT! (click)

I can only imagine what the poor telemarketer thought of that one.

Oh, I try to be kind to telemarketers. I really try.

But after my father passed away, we kept getting telemarketer calls for him, even after we moved to a house where he had never lived.

Finally, one day I wasn't in the best of moods, and someone called and asked for him. The caller had the misfortune of being very persistent, so finally I just said, "I'm sorry, but if you wish to speak to Mr. Dad, you'll need to schedule a seance."

There was a long silence on the other end of the line, followed by a mumbled apology and a hang-up.

I kind of felt bad afterward for doing that, but sometimes the moment overtakes you and things just come out.

Correct english would be "MAY I", not "can I".
"May" implying permission.
"Can" meaning ability.
You're welcome.
