The three questions I ask the MTS telemarketer


When MTS telemarketers call me to up-sell, I ask them these questions three:

1. Why do employees get first crack at concert tickets, but not customers?
2. Why does a proud Manitoba company farm out its advertising to Vancouver?
3. Isn't it time to kill Morty the Bison?

It's a rollicking conversation; so rollicking that the MTS telemarketer who last called me closed the conversation by saying, "Well, I have to go now..." Was it something I said?

  1. Shame on MTS!

    I mean, Manitoba isn't even the Bison capital of the world or anything. Why are they using a silly Bison?

    Since Winnipeg was designated Polar Bear capital of the world, the LEAST they could do is kill off lame old Morty and bring in some world-class polar bears. We could even immortalize our own Debby! (May she rip...)
