Telemarketing Fail
Contributor

This entertained me so much that I felt the need to share it with you.  I will preface it only with a brief political snippet.

On May 8th, in the state of North Carolina, there will be on the ballot a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment that would define marriage in our state as the legal union between one man and one woman.  There are signs up all over the place either promoting or denouncing this amendment.  In fact, one entire church denomination has taken it upon itself to advertise its merit on every single one of its marquees.  (Not my denomination, however.)

Anyhow, a friend of mine posted this on Facebook earlier tonight.

You just can't make up dialogue this good.  I hope you enjoy.

Can't decide whether it was TELEMARKETING FAIL or TELEMARKETING SUCCESS....

Caller:  May I please speak with the Male Head of Household?

My friend:  I beg your pardon?

Caller:  I am calling from the ______  Research Group.... I need to speak with the male head of household.

My friend:  Well, sir, you just called a lesbian household, and the only male here is a cat.  I doubt you'll get many answers from him!

Caller:  OH MY - I'm really sorry - I hope I didn't offend....

My friend:  Are you in NC?

Caller:  Yes....

My friend:  PLEASE VOTE NO TO THE AMENDMENT IN MAY!

Thanks!
