A clever telemarketer

I got a call today from a foreign-sounding telemarketer with a California number. It went something like this:

Me: Hello?

[Long pause as telemarketing maching patches through operator]

TM: May I speak with Peter?

"I'm afraid you have the wrong number."

"Oh, this is XXX from YYY. May I speak with the Office Manager?"

"This is a large law firm. I'm not sure who you want to talk to."

"Oh, may I speak with Attorney Wimberly?"

"Wimberly?! Huh?"

"How about Attorney Wadsworth?"

"Wimberly?! Wadsworth?! Are you making this up?"

"Oh, OK. Thank you for your time. Good-bye."


Maybe you aren't chuckling like I was. But if she was making that up, I have to congratulate her. Wimberly and Wadsworth...
