Unsolicited

As part of my job, my name gets listed on the corporate website. As a result, I end up with a fair share of spam, and spam-like phone calls. I just got off the phone with someone pitching me backup storage software. To save everyone time, I tend to cut off those calls very fast, as I know pretty quickly which products and services I’m even remotely interested or likely to be a customer for, and which ones I’m not. The strange thing is a couple of minutes after I hung up, I got:

Hi David,

This is in reference to my call to you right now.

Please note this isn’t an unsolicited call or email. You didn’t allow me to
finish.

(I’ll skip the rest, as I don’t particularly want to advertise or demonize the individual or the company). The startling point is italicized above. My reply:

Of course it is. I never asked you to call or email.

Best of luck.
