Rather funny marketing call

Discussion in 'Jokes and Humour' at netrider.net.au started by takagawa, Feb 1, 2005.

  1. I just had a phone call about 15 minutes ago from one of them marketing guys.
    "Hi, I'm from <some marketing research company>, we're not selling anything. We're looking for some people to be an audience for a tv show, which includes advertising and credits, and we're interested in what people think about it."
    "Umm... okay."
    "Err.. alright, are you the err... main grocery shopper in your household?"
    "Err... are you female?"
    "Haha, no."
    "Oh I'm sorry, we're looking for a female audience for this. Thankyou bye."
    "Ah... okay...."

  2. Ha, what a nob!

    Maybe you should have said yes, then changed to a high voice.

  3. isnt that some sort of discrimination?

  4. bwahahahahahhaa :LOL: a telemarketer hung up on you?!?!? you must really smell :shock: :wink:
  5. yea, that's what I realised. I was like, 'whoa... okay could have been a bit less obvious.'
  6. Some years ago I heard of a scam where peoples names were picked out of a phone book and if they did not answer thieves would assume no one was home and come round to rob the place. If someone answered then the caller simply pretended to be a market researcher like what you experienced.
