A pain in the neck
SOME time ago I received a telephone call, a man was speaking and the conversation went like this: “Good morning sir, if you suffer from any of these ailments sir, I am able to help you sir, back pain, leg pain, chest pain, sciatica, arthritis, lumbago. Do you suffer from any of these sir?”
I replied “Yes I suffer from all of those how can you help me?” he replied very excitedly “You are just my man, sir, we are doing a very special never-to-be-repeated offer on chair lifts”.
When I told him that a chair lift would be of no benefit to me as I lived in a caravan, he raised his voice and shouted “OK mate, keep taking the tablets mate” and slammed the phone down.
Incidentally, I am ex-directory, how do they do it?
