Meat Packages

After posting about answering machine reminded me of my days as a telemarketer (yes, I know....go ahead and shoot me. But I was young and needed the money, and it was better than being a stripper...I think!)

Anyway, I worked for a frozen food company and my job was to offer "free meat packages" to people. Yes, you already know what I'm going to say.

I can't tell you how many times I had men say back to me, even ones that you could tell were ancient, "I have a free meat package for you!"

One time, I went off on a rude person and they called the company back to complain. Luckily, it was just us telemarketers in the office...the boss was never around. So my friend answered the phone and said that she was the manager, and assured the person that she would fire me, lol.

And those meat packages? Nothing more than a measily chicken leg and thigh. So my "package" wasn't anything to brag about!
