Cold Calling

by | 27th, August 2003

‘TOM Mabe, 36, from Kentucky, USA, is a hero. We should thank him.

Sick of being woken and disturbed by cold calling marketers offering him all manner of useless products Mabe plotted revenge.

He travelled to a telephone marketing conference in Washington DC and waited until it ended. He waited until the delegates were in bed. He waited until they were asleep. And then he called each room.

“I’m calling on behalf of the Telemarketers With Insomnia Foundation,” he said. An Anorak medal is on is way.’
