Sunday Truism

We have been receiving quite a few telemarketers recently. 
I try not to be rude to them since they are working for a living and I appreciate that. 
Dinnertime, before 8 in the morning or after 8 in the evening make me cranky though.
Last week, I received one in the afternoon that ALMOST had me buying whatever it was they were selling.
As I answered the phone, a cheerful voice with a southern drawl exclaimed,
"You are home! 
You are harder to reach than the last pickle in the pickle jar!"
Made me smile!

That was clever. You wonder how telemarketing could ever be profitable, but there have to be people ... somewhere ... that buy the stuff?
