Telemarketer (TM): Hi Miss Tan, you have been selected for a special benefit offered by American Express. Would you like to hear more about it?
Me (M): Er, sure?
TM: The benefit is CreditShield......goes on for a few seconds...
M: Er, sorry, I hate to interrupt you, but can I just tell you that I'm not interested in the product?
TM: Why not?
M: I pay my credit card bills quite regularly, I don't really need to worry about it.
TM: But the beauty of this thing is.....something or other....it's really quite good.
M: Yeah, but I really don't think I'd be interested.
TM: Why don't you let me tell you about the benefits and then you can tell me your decision?
M: Nah, I think that's alright. I'd probably say no.
TM: But if you let me tell you about the benefits and how much it costs, you may change your mind.
M: Probably not, I don't want to spend any more money.
TM: Well, why don't you let me tell you about the benefits and then you can tell me your decision?
M: Ok, sure. You can tell me the benefits. But I can also tell you that I will no longer be listening.
TM: That's alright then Miss Tan, thank you so much for your time.
