“She Would Have Gotten My Attention!”

“She Would Have Gotten My Attention!”

 

A woman in Colorado Springs was getting swamped with calls from strangers. A billing service had launched an 800 number that was identical to hers.

When she called to complain, she was told to get a new number. "I've had mine for twenty years," she pleaded. "Couldn't you change yours?"

The company refused, so she retorted, "Fine. From now on, I'm going to tell everyone who calls that their bill is paid in full."

The company got a new number the next day.

That is one smart cookie, Joe Petrowsky. Now if she would only come up with a doosie like that to quell all the spam calls we receive daily!

One always needs to find leverage in order to get someone to act the way you want them to.
