Today I had the pleasure of getting in a lift just as the emergency phone in there started ringing. I thought it might be fun to answer it. It was a cold call. I thought it might be even more fun to answer this cold call as the lift. The following exchange occurred. I thought I was on top, but perhaps I was s....laaaaammed.
Voiceover: Hi. You've been missold payment protection insurance. Please press five.
Me: <presses 5>
Callcenter man: Hello. Can I take your name please.
Me: I am a lift
Callcenter man: Sorry?
Me: I am a lift. You called me and I'm a lift.
Callcenter man: Which floor are you on at the moment?
Me: I am on the 1st floor.
Callcenter man: Ok. Well, please will you go up to the penthouse...
Callcenter man: ...and jump off.
Me: On it...
Callcenter man: <already hung up>
So what exactly just happened and who won? I think he treated me like I was prank calling him, where I was treating him like he'd cold called me... the ultimate face off.
