So I'm cooking dinner and the phone rings. This happens a lot. And despite the fact that we are on the "do not call" list, I still get calls from fake agencies trying to sell me tickets to the "Fireman's Ball" or home improvement services or whatnot. This time it was home improvement. I told him that we aren't planning anything (lie, we need to redo our master bath) and that if I DID want any work done, it would be through my BIL, who is a contractor. "Oooooh," he replied, "The old brother in law is a contractor thing. OK ma'am." AS IF. AS IF to say I was lying.
Well, I was only partially lying. My BIL does have a contractor's license, but he doesn't do home improvements.
Still, the nerve.
So tell me, have you ever lied to a salesperson on the phone?
