I love tele-sales people. For several minutes you have a captive audience. They have to listen to your woes and tales, and they have to care, all in the vain hope you’ll buy their wares. They speak to you in a sparkly voice, they chuckle, they “ummm” and “aahhh”. They have to laugh at your bad jokes:
”How are you on this lovely day?”
”Well, it’s hardly a “lovely” day now is it Gerri!”
”HA HA HA HA… so about insurance…”
I would just like to say thank you to Gerri from AA insurance for caring so much, being that sensitive ear I so needed to hear me out on some problems. And while I did not purchase better cover, I do believe he has a good deal better insight into the screwed up emotional workings of European men and why they should be avoided at all costs.
As should be bottles and bottles of Graham’s wine to resolve & overcome it all. …Someone pass the panados…
P.S. Another day, another wedding invitation. This time to a traditional Sotho wedding in Soweto.
