My apologies to the unnamed telemarketer....

Tonight at 5:45 Bart promised to take Dominyk to the store to buy a special lunch for a field trip tomorrow. This is a family tradition -- to go with Dad to buy lunch -- but Dominyk had to wait for 3 hours. Not a good plan.

About 10 minutes before the time was finally up someone called for me on the house phone while I was talking to Bart on the cell -- he was telling me that he was on his way to get Dominyk. Instead of coming up to get me, DOminyk just stood holding the phone screaming at me. Since he had been screaming at me for hours about Bart not being home, I didn't hear that the phone was for me. So, instead of setting the phone down to fetch me, he yelled even louder. Tony, hearing chaos and strife, hurried down to the kitchen to scream at Dominyk to shut up at which point I think Dominyk threatened to F**** kill him because he is such a f***** fata*** b*****, still while holding the phone.

As I approached him trying to hush him, he dropped the phone.

Needless to say, the telemarketer had hung up. Nobody gets paid well enough to hold on the line for that.

I'm only hoping s/he hung up after the first few minutes and didn't stay on line until the end.

So that is how the rest of my evening has gone.

You should market that as a way to get rid of telemarketers!

Oh we purposely hand the phone to whichever kid is in the moment when telemarketers call. Since we've started doing that we've gotten a lot less calls. Bonus!
