Playing With Telemarketers
  • I was at home the other night in the middle of my dinner when the phone rang.
  • ME: Hello.
  • AT&T: Hello, this is AT&T.
  • ME: Is this AT&T.
  • AT&T: Yes, this is AT&T ...
  • ME: This is AT&T.
  • AT&T: Yes, this is AT&T ...
  • ME: Is this AT&T.?
  • AT&T: Yes! This is AT&T, may I speak to Mr. Byron, please?
  • ME: May I ask who is calling?
  • AT&T: This is AT&T.
  • ME: OK, hold on.
  • At this point I put the phone down for a solid 5 minutes thinking that, surely, this person would have hung up the phone. I ate my salad. Much to my surprise, when I picked up the receiver, they were still waiting.
  • ME: Hello?
  • AT&T: Is this Mr. Byron?
  • ME: May I ask who is calling, please?
  • AT&T: Yes, this is AT&T ...
  • ME: This is AT&T?
  • AT&T: Yes, this is AT&T ...
  • ME: The phone company.
  • AT&T: Yes, sir.
  • ME: I thought you said this was AT&T.
  • AT&T: Yes, sir, we are a phone company.
  • ME: I already have a phone.
  • AT&T: We aren't selling phones today, Mr. Byron. We would like to offer you 10 cents a minute, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
  • ME: Now, that's 10 cents a minute, 24 hours a day?
  • AT&T: (getting a little excited at this point by my interest) Yes, sir, that's right! 24 hours a day!
  • ME: 7 days a week.?
  • AT&T: That's right.
  • ME: 365 days a year.?
  • AT&T: Yes, sir.
  • ME: I am definitely interested in that! Wow!!! That's amazing!
  • AT&T: We think so!
  • ME: That's quite a sum of money!
  • AT&T: Yes, sir, it's amazing how it adds up.
  • ME: OK, so will you send me checks weekly, monthly or just one big one at the end of the year for the full $52,560; and if you send an annual check, can I get a cash advance?
  • AT&T: Excuse me?
  • ME: You know, the 10 cents a minute.
  • AT&T: What are you talking about?
  • ME: You said you'd give me 10 cents a minute, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. That comes to $144 per day, $1008 per week and $52,560 per year. I'm just interested in knowing how you will be making payment.
  • AT&T: Oh, no, sir. I didn't mean we'd be paying you. You pay us 10 cents a minute.
  • ME: Wait a minute, how do you figure that by saying that you'll give me 10 cents a minute, that I'll give YOU 10 cents a minute? Is this some kind of subliminal telemarketing scheme? I've read about things like this in the Enquirer, you know.
  • AT&T: No, sir, we are offering 10 cents a minute for
  • ME: THERE YOU GO AGAIN! Can I speak to a supervisor please?
  • AT&T: Sir, I don't think that is necessary.
  • ME: I insist on speaking to a supervisor!
  • AT&T: Yes, Mr. Byron. Please hold.
  • At this point, I begin trying to finish my dinner.
  • SUPERVISOR: Mr. Byron?
  • ME: Yeah.
  • SUPERVISOR: I understand you are not quite understanding our 10 cents a minute program.
  • ME: Is This A T &T?
  • SUPERVISOR: Yes, sir, it sure is.
  • ME: (I had to swallow before I choked on my food. It was all I could do to suppress my laughter and I had to be Careful not to produce a snort.) No, actually, I was just waiting for someone to get back to me so that I could sign up for the plan.
  • SUPERVISOR: Ok, no problem, I'll transfer you back to the person who was helping you.
  • ME: Thank you.
  • I was on hold once again and managed a few more mouthfuls. I need to end this conversation. Suddenly, there was an aggravated but polite voice at the other end of the phone.
  • AT&T: Hello, Mr. Byron, I understand that you are interested in signing up for our plan.?
  • ME: No, but I was wondering - do you have that "Friends and Family" thing because I'm an only child and I'd really like to have a little brother...
  • AT&T: *click*

Majestic Zimbabwe

Ruled by Robert Mugabe since its 1980 independence, this southern African nation has enjoyed a steady recovery since its 2008 civil unrest and economic collapse. Travelers have started to trickle back into the country, seeking out the breathtaking experiences that originally put Zimbabwe on the safari map.

Most people begin their journey in the Zimbabwean town of Victoria Falls. It is where most visitors start, walking the edge of a dizzying gorge and feeling overpowered by the majesty – and the spray – of Victoria Falls. Zimbabwe remains desperately poor, with an unemployment rate close to 90%. So young men seeking to raise a few bucks often try and sell off their remaining stocks of Zimbabwe dollars to tourists as novelty items (the official currency is now the American dollar, a move that served to stabilize the country’s economy).

The nation’s main attraction is the massive Hwange National Park  which is a staggering size at 14,000 sq km. Visitors to the area enjoy going out on game drives to view zebra, giraffe, cape buffalo, elephant and all sorts of other exotic creatures. Walking safaris are not possible in countries, but Zimbabwean guides are usually regarded as the very best in Africa.

Undergoing a rigorous training program that usually spans four years, the guides here must actually shoot and kill four of the big five mammals (rhinos are endangered and thus exempt), learning how to stop them dead in their tracks. This also means that a Zimbabwe safari has less of the caution that comes with corporate lodges and safari camps, so visitors can get much closer to wildlife here than in other African destinations.


i want to cry, i miss zimbabwe so much
