Telemarketer Phone Call Recorded
« on: August 12, 2019, 06:15:00 am »

This post has nothing to do with anything. It is as irrelevant as my personal life. And I'm sure I'm posting it in the wrong place, so hope all will forgive me.
That said, I'll add this -- It's just an audio file which is less than four minutes.  More than a laugh per minute.
Enjoy!

That is brilliant, hilarious.  I don't care if it is in the wrong place, it is funny.  We all can do with a laugh in these horrible times.

Thanks for posting.

That is just funny.  Just last week we got tired of my wife's phone blowing up from some company wanting to inspect our house for hail damage. So the last time they called I answered it and went off on the guy for being the dude my wife is having an affair with (she is not by the way) and wanting him to meet him in person. Complete with a description of how the conversation was going to go.

They haven't called back.

Good for a smile, fershur.  How would it be to have that gift of gab?

Heh! Nice to hear you say that, SMS. I had the same impression -- wow, what if I could think and talk that fast, make up stuff like that right off the bat, lol! Oh well, guess I'm just stuck with an old, worn-out, and largely inadequate mind, blessed by the 4G Brain Fog, Rapid Aging Syndrome, Old Timers Disease (Alzheimer's, I think they call it), and selective memory lol!

Salute!

My "Snappy Comebacks" usually take several hours ... when the actors in the play are long gone.

I hear ya. Like, "Dang! Why didn't I say that in the heat of the moment?"

An old oriental philosophical sort of dude once said --

"A wise man has his yes and has his no."

Of course, I can't measure up to that, but it's nice to remember it now and then. ;)

Salute!

Yes, but what does it mean, what does it actually mean?

I don't like ambiguity, I'm too dumb to understand it.

Well, mouse, it simply means that all the incessant chatter about the endless parade of interesting, or important, or trivial topics which inspire commentary from multitudinous readers fades day by day as new days bring new news, and the beat goes on and all the talking in the world which I've seen during the past twenty years since TMM began has not changed the direction of the behemoth which we all see as "Tyranny".  That phrase indicates that at the end of one's life, all philosophical thought reduces to either an affirmation of something or a denial of something, a "yes" or a "no" -- on the personal level.
Sorry that this answer/reply is not as concise as I'd hoped it would be.
Salute!
