Step Into My Office-In McDonald's?

Are You Serious?

It was Sunday afternoon and my hubby, son and I stopped into McDonald's for a quick bite to eat. We sat down and began talking about the day, football (of course) and just normal family chit chat, joking and laughing. All of a sudden a man sitting in the booth directly behind's us says, "Hello, Mr. James, I'm calling from Equity Liquidation Firm" (or something like that).

We all instinctively stopped talking mid-sentence, not wanting to interrupt this very professional sounding business call. He continued, "We have some property that I'm sure you'll be interested in. Please call me at (714) --- ---- (whatever the number was.) I look forward to hearing from you."

After he hung up, we looked at each other and started laughing realizing that we had been very courteous "employees" by remaining very quiet for his call. The man seemed oblivious to us. He was set up with his office computer and paperwork in place. He also apparently didn't worry about fellow "employees."

We started to carry on where we left off when all of a sudden..."Hello, Mr. Macks, I'm calling from Equity Liquidation Firm, we have some property that I'm sure you'll be interested in. Please call me at (714) --- ----. I look forward to hearing from you." 

Yes...we once again stopped talking, so as not to disturb the business transaction taking place. But after that call we looked at each other and said, "Is he serious?"

Oh he was..."Hello Mr. Simon..."

By the third call, my hubby blurted something out really loud & we started cracking up. The man didn't turn around or say a word. He just went down his list to find the next name. I found myself trying to hurry and eat so we could get out of there. It was like having a telemarketer on your phone and never being able to hang up to get rid of him.

Bet you never knew that McDonald's now rents out "Business Booths?!" LOL! WOW!
