If you're planning on leaving any voicemail's, try this: "Hi!  This is CMB and I can be reached at 123-456-7890.  It's very important that you"  Hang up the phone in the middle of your word.


People will call you back to make sure they didn't miss anything important (which of course they did; your call!).


Smile and Dial, buddy!

Hello, my name is John Jones and I am calling on behalf of the survey firm JD Flowers.  We are attempting to contact investors about their outlook for the future.  May I ask if you are an investor?


Assuming they say that they are you then ask them if they are optimistic about the coming year, you ask them what type of advice they receive, what they invest in and so forth.  All generic questions--most people love to give their opinions and don't mind being part of a generic survey.


A week or two later you call them back again--armed with knowledge of what their attitude is, who they currently use and so forth.

This coming from the guy who only picks up the phone to call the Social Security Administration to beg for an advance on his monthly check....

Suffering from envy will rot your soul.

How did I know that would be your response...


So I should be envious of a bitter old man whose days are void of substance and whose only motivation for waking in the morning is to see who responded to the dribble from the previous evening?


Yup... You are living the good life... Oh wait- I forgot about your wife's "ten figure trust fund"...  Now I am truly envious of your stature and prestige in life...

I'm not following something here. For as long as I've been a member of this forum we, as a collective group, have wanted DA and his past multiple personalities to become a positive force on the forum, rather than destroying every thread with nonsense. Unless I'm missing something here, he gave a straight answer to the poster's question. In fact many of DA's posts are to the point, giving good information.


 So, what's the problem?

1. The first call is a lie.

2. Unless you hide your caller ID when you call the first time, the recipient of these two calls will be able to tell on the 2nd call that you are the same person who had called before and lied to him.

Hello, my name is John Jones and I'm calling about the ad in the help wanted section.  My former employer made me cold call and I'm seeking opportunities with an organization that values me as a human being.  When is a good time for us to get together?

I broke my own rule, reading comprehension counts.


Ok, still, can't we all just get along?

You scared me for a second there BondGuy, I thought you had turned to the dark side.


And no, you will never catch me getting along with the Old Man and his Mutt. I guess its my eternal immaturity because I am younger than 35.
