How the Goonfather foiled a telemarketer for a makeover studio – Part 2

This story isn’t related to the first one. It’s a separate call from a separate makeover studio and it happened quite a while ago…

Telemarketer (female): Good afternoon, can I speak to Mr ____?

The Goonfather: Yea, wassup?

Telemarketer: Hi Mr ____. I’m calling from Naughty by Nature, a makeover studio. We would like to offer you a free photoshoot.

The Goonfather: Mmmm… Naughty by Nature?

Telemarketer: Yes, we’re a newly opened studio.

The Goonfather: Okay. So, when would you like me to come down?

Telemarketer: How about the day after tomorrow? We have available slots for then.

The Goonfather: What?!? So fast? I need to go gym and do some workout first. My body not ready to be shot.

Telemarketer: Haha…

The Goonfather: So, is it a solo shoot or do I have a partner?

Telemarketer: It is up to you, sir. You could bring a partner if you like.

The Goonfather: But I don’t have a partner. Do you have models to pose with me?

Telemarketer: Er… no.

The Goonfather: Hmmm. It would be nice to have a hot female model to do this shoot with me, so I won’t feel cold alone.

Telemarketer: Er…?

The Goonfather: Is the photographer male or female? Cos I don’t think I am comfortable being naked and doing suggestive poses in front of a male photographer.

Telemarketer: Huh? You don’t have to be naked.

The Goonfather: What? But you said your studio is called Naughty by Nature, right?

Telemarketer: Oh, haha. It’s just a name. We’re not doing that kind of shoot.

The Goonfather: Hmm… then you’re the same as the last 10 studios that called me, which I normally hang up by the second sentence. So, tell me something.

Telemarketer: Huh? Like?

The Goonfather: Anything lah. Maybe about this photoshoot you’re offering.

Telemarketer: Oh, okay. This photoshoot is free of charge.

The Goonfather: Okay. Please leave me a message after the *toot*!

    I am sure it would be a lot of fun if the GF actually turns up at their studios to test their makeover skills. Voted for Sheylara!

    Sham: Haha. He always looks forward to them calling when he got nothing to do.

    Jacelyn: Yeah, I think I heard some bad stuff about them in the past, but can’t really remember what about. Many bad stories about many studios.

    modchip: How do you record a mobile phone conversation?

    Minou: Hmm… so far I never got any makeover studio calls. Wonder why. Always insurance and hotels (for those stupid membership cards) only. Lucky you didn’t go!

    Goonmother: And the Goonmother is…?

    aig: Thanks for the vote! ;)

    Jason Ho: Haha… did you go for the photoshoot?

    lawless: Hmm… I don’t think they can find any clothes to fit him. :P

    JayWalk: Where do telemarketers get any numbers from?

    How do you record a mobile phone conversation?

    There are 3rd party apps for phones that does that — call recorders. :D

    Ok… I love the Goonfather, and it was a damn good thing that you labelled the things above. I was trying to click on your face for ages and nothing happened…

    Goonmother: Er… ok. Doesn’t quite have the same oomph, though! Haha.

    starm|st: Haha, you wouldn’t say that if you have to listen to his corny jokes day in and out.

    modchip: Software or hardware? Can record both party’s conversations? I know there’s a type of tape recorder you can attach to normal land line phones to record conversations… but dunno anything about mobile phones. :P

    Numby: Why not?

    modchip: Yeah, I think it was down this morning. But it works now!! :)

    Jesta: Riiiiiiiight.

    Well actually no harm going for it. It is true they employ high pressure sale techniques but there is only so much they can do. My wife went, got some pics in soft copy for free.

    Insist that she got no money and she pretty get out of the thing alive. maybe need thick skin too :)

    weekee: Yeah, just that most people can’t withstand the pressure of hard sell and end up parting with their money unwillingly.

    aig: Thanks! :)

    WokkingMum: Haha.. nice! I like your name! :) Creative and cute. And you’ve got some delicious stuff in your blog!

    Wow, they’ve been around for at least 2 years already and they’re still calling people up and offering free photoshoots?
