Caller: May I speak to the IT Department please
Me: I’m sorry but they are currently not available can I take a message?
Caller: And who makes the decisions re: IT purchases in your company?
Me: Is this a sales call?
Caller: Who makes the decisions about IT purchases in your company?
Me: I’m sorry but we’re not interested.
Caller: Are you the decision maker?
Me: No, I am with their answering service.
Caller: So you make those decisions for them as their answering service?
Me: No, they have advised us that they are not interested.
Caller: Why don’t you answer another phone then! (SLAM!)
WIDTS: Such a witty comeback for someone who makes their living talking to people all day long! You should be a sit-down-and-shut-up comedian!
