We all know how absurd, uninteresting and irritating the tele callers are on our mobiles. Here is a random pitch at Mohandas Karmchand Gandhi taking a mobile call :
T: Hello can I speak to Mohandas
G: Hello. Sorry my father is not here anymore…
T: No problem sir, whom am I speaking to
G: This is Gandhi here, Mohandas Karmchand Gandhi.
T: Sir are you in town sir
G: Yes my dear. Why do you ask?
T: Ok. Would you like to subscribe to our Health insurance scheme? We have it for all ages
G: Health insurance. So I need to die to get that money?
T: No sir, in case you get any admission to hospital, we will re-imburse up to policy limits
G: (Confused) you mean I need to pay money in Government hospital.
T: (chuckling) No sir, this is for private treatment. Government hospitals are free
G: Thank God, I am hale and hearty. I would not need it.
T: Fine sir how about personal loan upto 10 laks in 48 hrs sir
G: Bappre bap..why do I need money of that nature. I am not a king.
T: No just in case you need urgent money to pay for that car or that new plasma TV
G: I will only buy with money I have… I don’t need those
T: We also have good savings scheme
G: (Clearly getting irritated) My child, how old are you?
T: Why sir am 19
G: You should be in college studying all about our great history and other things
T: Am doing that sir, but this is part time call center work for pocket money
G: Tsk. Tsk. You should stop earning money and devote yourself to good studies. Money will follow.
T: Sorry. But I need to pay my credit card, have borrowed badly…
G: Credit card – in your age?
T: Yes initially credit card was given based on this income and now this income is used to pay that credit card dues..
G: Tsk Tsk what kind of parents do you have – who let their children work for education
T: They both separated 4 years back (sob)
G: My child calm down… All these should not happen
T: Just to help my credit line sir will you at least buy McDowells Mutual funds
G: Hey Ram!
T: Sir, Gandhi sir … are you out there?
