Even though telemarketers are slightly less beloved than dentists and tax auditors,
that's the job my friend took during his summer vacation.
Halfway through one of his sales pitches, he heard a clicking at the other end of the line.
Thinking the man may have hung up, he asked,
"Are you still there?"
"Yeah, still here," said the man.
"Sorry, I heard a click and I thought you'd been disconnected."
"No," the man said: "that would sound more like this."
He then proceeded to show me what it would sound like by slamming down the phone.
