Had to get the redeye from Darwin yesterday - 01:30 out of Darwin, arriving Sydney 06:30, after working all day. Ended up getting to bed about 10am after having 4 hours sleep in the previous 50+ hours. Guess who rings at 12:00. Telstra telemarketers asking if I wanted to change back to Telstra. It was an Australian woman on the phone. No. OK, she said, thanks for your time. Good, no big pressure sales talk. So I go back to sleep. 4 hours later I get another phone call. It is another Australian Telstra telemarketer! "Would you like to change back to Telstra because we have a lot of great pac-" "Stop there mate, I just got one of these phone calls a couple of hours ago and said I wasn't interested. I have come off shift and I am trying to get some sleep" "Oh, really. OK." and that I thought would be enough, especially as I had pointed out that I was trying to get some sleep after being up all night and this was the second time they had woken me. BUT NO! "We really have some good packages if you have a few minutes..." and then he started his sales patter. F^&* ME! I was amazed. "IN HOW MANY F&*^ING WAYS AND HOW MANY F*&^ING TIMES DO YOU WANT ME TO SAY NO!!!" and I hung up.(don't mess with the sleeping bear, he may wake up grumpy) I'm sure he was thinking "I'm just trying to do my job" but if they are going to push people like this then they better expect to cop this in return. I don't see how this can be an effective marketing strategy to push. I am now extremely pissed off with them and out of spite it will be a long time before I even waste a second looking at what they have to offer.
