Living Up to Her Name

We all get annoying calls from telemarketers. Our household gets the same two calls every few days. One is from a satellite company, the other from a credit card debt reduction place. The credit card one starts out with some line about "did you know that your credit card debt is close to $6000. " Blah, blah, blah. I don't even have a credit card and the SO's is paid in full. Anyway . . .

Actress answered the phone the other day to be greeted by this call. She has heard it before and usually hangs up but this time . . . well this time she was in full actress mode. She let them get into the spiel and then said (very melodramatically) " But, but I'm only 10 years old! I don't have a credit card. I don't even have one of those bank account card thingies!"

The rest of us were rolling on the floor laughing. I think the caller didn't know what to do because Actress said that she heard nothing on the other end and then a click as they hung up.

The things kids think of! :)

Does she need a job? I could keep her busy 12 hours a day answering this phone!
