Adventures in Telemarketing

Scene: A living room.  Me sitting in a recliner doing a crossword puzzle.  Phone rings.

ME: Hello?

SALESDROID: Hi, your warranty on your car has expired or is about to expire. If you would like more information on how to extend it, press 1.

[I press 1. Live human comes on the line.]

CON ARTIST: I’m sorry but we can’t seem to pull up the information on your car. Please tell me the year, make and model.

ME: It’s a 1960 Edsel Villager station wagon.


ME: Hm, they must know that Ford only made 59 of them; hard to get parts for it. Oh well.

[I go back to doing the crossword.  Lights fade.  End of play.]

  1. Now’s the time I really wish I had an ’83 DeLorean. Low production run, extremely small parts supply, and some potentially ugly repair/maintenance issues (the fiberglass frame being first and foremost).
