Hello! Is this Lawrence?
Lawrence, my name is (garbled), and I’m calling for The-Universal-Let’s-Save-America-From-Disaster-and-Ultimate-Calamity-and-Possilby-Eternal-Hell Organization*. How are you today?
Lawrence, have you decided who you will vote for in the upcoming Presidential election?
Uh — you have NOT decided?
I have not.
You know the election is coming up, right?
November. Actual voting is in November. About three months away.
That’s pretty close not to know who you will vote for, don’t you think?
Not really. Don’t have to decide until I’m in the voting booth.
Well . . .
I’m missing the Olympics.
I’m missing the Olympics. This call is keeping me from watching the Olympics.
Oh, of course!
The election is three months away. And I have not decided yet.
Well, I thank you for your time, and you have a wonderful day.
Thank you. You, too.
*I don’t really remember what the organization was. If you’re thinking it was a conservative group that called, you’d be wrong.
