OK, I have a lot of stuff to announce that you all are definitely going to want to know about. Before I get to those announcements, though, here is a snippet of a phone conversation I had earlier today:
When telemarketers call my house, they are in for a real treat. I used to watch the show Crank Yankers, where people would make funny crank calls, and while I don’t do that, when people call me at home, I fee like it’s fair game!
Telemarketer: Hello there, my name is Rob…
Me: Hellooo Raub, How r you? (I said in a very thick Russian accent)
Rob: I’m good thanks. I’m calling on behalf of the Nevada police department and we were trying to…
Me: Police? No, I no want trouble. Is police for me?
Rob: No sir, I’m calling on behalf of the police…
Me: Maybe my son? He is in trouble again? Marcooooo!!! Where are you? You drink in the park again? Mr. Rob, Marco is in trouble? He is bad boy again?
Rob: No, no, no sir, your son is not in trouble, you are not in trouble.
Me: If he did bad things again don’t worry I fix him good. Marcoooo!!! Come here? What you did boy? Bring me my broom so I can fix you!
Rob: Sir, your son is not in trouble. I’m calling on behalf of officers who have been hurt in the line of duty.
Me: No, my son he don’t shoot the police. He shoot the police? Marcooo!!!
Rob: Sir, this has nothing to do with your son. We are accepted donations on behalf of the Nevada police.
Me: OK, you want money, yes?
Rob: Well, not exactly, we are accepting donations on behalf of fallen officers and were hoping that we could send you a package and then have you send a donation.
Me: I am no rich man. You know, I work hard, 38 hours a day you know, work wit my hands to make bricks and put on the wall all day. Is hot here, you know?
Rob: We understand that sir, and we have individual donations for as little as $20. If we could have your address we could send out a package.
Me: Ok, ok, so I can think about yes? I don’t pay right now. I maybe make some money this week in working and see.
Rob: Ok sir, fantastic, so if I could just have your name sir.
Me: Is Vladimir.
Rob: Could you spell that please?
Me: Yes. V iel
Rob: I’m sorry what was that?
Me: V like in Victor but my name is no Victor ok?
Me: V L A D I M I R
Rob: And the last name?
Me: Krutov: K R U T O V
Rob: Ok just to verify that’s Vlarirmore Kersuv?
Me: Yes, correct.
Rob: Spelt V L A V I V M O R K E R S O I V
Me: Yes, perfect- you good boy.
Rob: Ok and your address please?
Me: I live in 4100 Snake Shorts.
Rob: 4100 Snake Shorts?
Me: No! I said 4100 Spring River!
Rob: 4100 Spring River then?
Me: You say sprint or spring? I say spring.
Rob: Ok sir, this phone call is being monitored so if you could just confirm that you are committed to sending at least a $15 donation we can send that out to you right away.
Me: No, no, my wife is no here. She know business. She is speak better English than for me. If I do and she don’t know she kill me. She is strong like bull.
Rob: Ok sir, but can we confirm that you will send the donation?
Me: Maybe is better you call later. My wife she is still work in the shop. She come home may 2:00am and I talk wis her. If she say ok, if she say no, then is no. She can eat me you know?
Rob: Ok sir, we’ll send that out right away. Thank you for your time.
Me: Thank you. Marco is good boy but sometime do bad things you know. Please don’t take him.
Rob: Ok sir, no problem.
Me: Ok, bye bye, and be a good boy ok?
I do this kind of thing all the time and I get a big kick out of it. I actually get excited when I see telemarketers call the house, it helps me practice my shtick, lol. I put in on speakerphone so Lori could here, and she almost choked on her dinner, lol. Ok, enough about that. Right now I’m getting ready to head out with the boys. Then tomorrow, I’m flying to LA for the day for a charity poker event. *************************************************************** Now here is the truly exciting news.
