Waiting Games

I thought of a new game to play. The rules are very simple. All you need is a phone and a stop watch.

When you receive a cold call, when asked if Mr or Mrs X or the householder are available, say “Yes, hold on a minute” & stay standing there with the phone. Now the fun begins.

  • Start the stop watch.
  • Wait until they hang up (Do not sneeze or giggle!).
  • Stop the stop watch.

My record as of today (27th Dec 2005) is 6 minutes 20 seconds!

Awesome stuff, that’s several other people whose time has not been wasted by the cold callers!
