    I am definitely going to start this practice tomorrow, I know they’ll be calling the office.

  • We often get recruitment calls at my company: “Would you like staff?” etc etc. It’s most efficient to reply: “The red god Xupubahlal is appeased at present with the sacrifice of the last three. May we call you at the next lunar cycle?”

    (I was in the habit of telling telemarketers ‘Have a very blessed day” as I hung up. I might just start doing that again.)
