Loud Thinking: Challenging life, software, and media

Want to know the secret of eternal life?

That was her hook. She was just calling a few people in the neighborhood, and wanted to give me too the chance of learning about eternal life through the teachings of Jesus. Oh really. I doubt Jesus was ever interested in having his name used as a telemarketing hook.

Despite a vague curiosity of finding out why she was slandering that already much-tormented man for, I had no intention of letting the conversation reach to the answer of her real motives. So I told her politely, yet firm, that I wasn't interested.

Then she called back about a minute later, restating the same hook. Or tried. I cut her off half-ways through the first sentence, "You already did me", and hung up. There should be an 11th commandment: "Thou shall not telemarket (especially in my name)".
