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!
