Telemarketers…on June 30, 2011 at 2:01 am
Seriously. You called me, at least have the decency to have someone there ready to actually offer me something when YOU call ME.
Anyways, I’m in Kingston Ontario for a couple of days then heading out to a cottage. It’s fun, I’m hanging out with my girlfriends parents and last night we went to Fort Henry to check out the Sunset Ceremonies. It’s pretty cool. They have a bunch of college kids dressed up in traditional british soldier unifrom and gear and perform drills and fire off cannons. it was loud and all explosiony. I got to see what an 1867 latrine looks like and yeah it’s pretty much what I’d expect.
I’d like to also point out that Allison from Extra Credits has injured her shoulder and she needs surgery if she’s ever going to do art again. The extra Credits guys have set up a RocketHub page to help get her some money for the surgery and to pay some artists to fill in for the episode art work. So check that out and donate if you can.
Again thanks to everyone who’s been voting and checking out the archives! I hope your enjoying yourselves and like always feel free to leave comments or check out my twitter or deviantart.
Just to clarify, it’s ‘Greg-warr’, right?
That’s the best approximation of it. Greg war works!
hmm, I wonder if it’s pronounced the same in canadian french and france’s french, with the accent differences and all that.
I think i wan tacos… =I
Coffee, arg, and telemarketer strangulation….. good mornings.
Part of a complete hangover cure.
I love how you are playing with a princess.. lol.. It’s soo true about the telemarkers.. Cant stand them..
What exactly are you doing to Peach in the first panel? o.O
I know its been a while since you asked,
but i think he’s just dusting her dress off.
I like to use a 140 decible whistle on telemarketers. I go, sure hold on a moment, then cut loose with a 10 sec blast. I keep doing that until they hang up. ive had one man last 10 tweets before.
The governor of WA state has the same last name.
it looks like this one got swapped for the Data comic 🙁
yeah I noticed… It’s fixed.
That last panel is priceless! ^^ I seriously can’t stop laughing! (Let’s hope my family doesn’t take me to a mental hospital…they already think I’m crazy. :p)
Heh, I’m glad I’m making ya laugh and it’s cool! the mental hospital is where all the interesting stories are from.
didn’t you say you are french canadian? and live in canada? Why the hell do they have such a hard time with your name?? I took a few years of french in high schoool, so it seems easy enough to me, but…i mean….your name is not that hard to say…
Please don’t strangle me Mr. Gragwar!! Don’t strangle the menial packmule of brain-dead marketing and customer service, we’re just scraping for minimal wages!! We know it’s as moronic as you tell it to be, believe me we at the office KNOW.
P.D: Landed here after the EC episode. Nice work!!
Thanks for stopping by! yeah I know you guys are just doing your job. It’s the system that calls me then asks me to wait that i’m more angry with!
I had a spanish teacher by the name of Matt Gregoire? Lol weird
Are you related to Govenor Christine Gregoire of Washington? I hope not. She’s a total bitch.
Gawd, I don’t usually wait for them to get that far but I have this rule that regardless of who’s calling, if they can’t say the name right, it’s not my problem.
I mean my first name is simple enough that if you can’t even figure it out on the third try, screw it, I’m not home.
At least it’s not as bad as my ex’s name… He had this one caller asking for mister McMongoose. No lie, they asked for a mcmongoose. I even drew a toon to go with it. XD
I have to wonder if there’s a McDonald’s somewhere in the world that serves a McMongoose sandwiche or something… >>?
Why wait? If I don’t hear a human voice in three seconds, I hang up. I really like it when I can hear them start talking while the handset is on its way to the cradle.
haha I love how the surname is bold and big in the bottom right.
