    Thursday morning jazz
    On my second cup of coffee this morning, the phone rang. Here is the conversation word by word for your entertainment.

    Me: Allo

    Voice (male, bad attempt at American accent): Blah Blah International?

    Me: Yep. What can I do for you?

    Voice: I’m calling from China Investment something. Can I talk to ... ummm… Mr. So and So? (name of my boss, close enough for me to understand but not nearly good enough to pass the line to my boss)

    Me: What is it regarding?

    Voice (accent getting worse): Business. Oh and what is his nationality? If you don’t mind me asking?

    Me: Yes I mind. What exactly do you want?

    Voice: Business. It’s actually complicated.

    Me: We don’t do complicated, sorry.

    Voice: Oh maybe I can talk to you then…

    Me: I don’t think so. Thanks for calling though.

    Voice: Ok, #$%^& it then (Hangs up).

    Me: ROFL

We appreciate your fervour in trying to talk us into your schemes and out of our money but we don’t have any money worth your attention. So BUGGER OFF! And oh well, since we are talking money here, how much are you willing to pay me for my boss’ nationality? I’ll sell :^)

      My scarf was covering me from my neck to my eyes... Some protect themselves from the sun with such a method. Funny...

      We are inundated by calls from various investment companies urging us to buy shares of the companies we've never heard of, promising unbelievable returns. So after a two years of such calls, I decided enough is enough! :^)
