Some coldcalling salestwat just rang my cell and asked for me. I told him I don’t have a telephone and he said sorry and hung up.
i used to be in sales. i never had to make cold calls but i did have to make follow-up calls - to people who had actually requested to be contacted….
I also have to call people. For some reason they often think I’m a bill collector. In reality I’m following up on their request for a loan. Lots of people are douchebags to me because they think I’m cold calling. Sometimes….those peoples loans don’t get approved. I get why people are douchey to people who are cold calling. But at the end of the day the people calling are just doing their job. The job they have in order to put food on the table. I try to be nice enough to people calling because I realize those workers probably don’t have it easy as it is and piling on isn’t really good for anyone. [not to pile on the op. just sharing a pov]
