This was the conversation shared by my cousin which her friend had with a credit card agent. Today one of my colleague got a call from such an agent and hence remembered the conversation. As usual the credit card agents are girls to talk as sweetly as possible and lure the customers. I have some friends who have actually made some good friends with these agents. Anyways I am deviating from the topic. Here it goes.
Credit Card Agent Girl: CCAG
My Cousin’s Friend: MCF
Phone ringing … Tring Tring … sorry not sure of the ring tone 😉
CCAG: Hello Sir Good Morning, I am calling from ICICI Bank.
MCF: This is regarding?
CCAG: We are offering a credit card with 0% annual fee.
MCF: Thanks but I am not interested.
CCAG: No sir please listen to this and then you can decide.
MCF: First of all how did you get my number.
CCAG: We have a database sir from where we dial some random numbers.
MCF: (Reluctantly) yeah tell me.
CCAG: This card is blah blah blah …
(After 5 minutes of explaining about the card)
CCAG: So Sir you just need to give your pay slip and 2 photos and fill a form. So what do you do sir?
MCF: Nothing I just sit at home watching TV.
CCAG: So are you a student sir?
MCF: No I just sit at home doing nothing.
CCAG: (Confused) oh ok … hmmm
CCAG: What does your father do sir?
MCF: Nothing he sits besides me and watches TV.
CCAG: (Understood what he was referfing to and fumingly) What sir you are joking … are you not interested in the card.
MCF: That is what I have said in the first place.
Angrily the girl kept down the phone.
I have shared this story with many people and they have also used the conversation to avoid such calls.
