[ From a friend on CIS ] Just two nights ago, I received a call that went like this ... Hello, may I speak to Mr. Ackerman? Speaking Good evening, Mr. Ackerman. My name is [whatever, who really cares what her name is]. I represent [something, something] Siding company. How are you doing this evening, sir? Doing real fine in my rented house. Just what I needed to hear sir. Thank You No problem. You realize, however, that I am lying to you? [silence, and then dial tone] Now THAT'S a good way to handle these turkeys. I'll try this other procedure next time.
