Unknown Caller

Once a public servant, always…..

The phone rings. A number my phone and I do not recognise. So, instead of “G’day, howzit going”. I automatically respond “Alan speaking, how can I help you?”

Old habits.

Having started so politely makes it difficult to be rude to telemarketers.

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.

    1. Sex workers are only trying to make a living too. But if I wanted their services, (which I do not) I would go to them. I do not appreciate being importuned by someone I don’t know about something that if I wanted, I’d probably already have.
