Loser's Guide to Life
I was sitting at home, getting a lot done, when suddenly (or eventually) the phone rang. It was a recorded voice inviting me to find out more about cheap loans. Press “9” now, etc. But who borrows money from a robot?
Just imagine the sort of person they expect to net with this approach: a guy sitting around with nothing important to do, so he answers the phone if it rings. (Of course, if he feels comfortable answering the phone, it probably means he's not a deadbeat).
He's thinking, “If I had a couple extra bucks, I'd go out, instead of sitting here in this dump. Ah, the phone! Maybe it's somebody who will lend me some money!”
