Tele: Is this the Hebers?
Tele: Can I give you a short survey?
Ian: Sure! (anything to talk to a girl!)
Tele: Do you have any allergies in the house.
Ian: Uh . . . yea.
Tele: Are they dust, pollen, hair, or all of the above?
Ian: Uh . . . pollen.
Ian: We don't have vaccines in our house.
Tele: You don't have a vacuum in your house?
Ian: Oh . . . a vacuum. Yeah, we have a vacuum.
Tele: How old is it?
Ian: 1 month.
Tele: The next questions are demographic.
Ian: Why are you asking me Democratic questions? Is this about tonight's political debate? Uh, I'm just a kid.
Tele: What age bracket are you in? 20, 30, 40, or 50?
Ian: You should talk to my mom.
Me: (from the kitchen) I'm busy!! I can't talk.
Ian: She can't talk right now. Dad, can you talk?
Aaron: (from the bedroom) No! Tell her we aren't interested.
Ian: They can't talk right now. We aren't interested.
Tele: We only have a few more questions left.
Ian: Really. We aren't interested.
Tele: Please, sir. This would really help me a lot!
Ian: No, thank you.
I think that I will have Ian answer the phone from now on. He will gain some much needed listening and speaking skills and Aaron and I will escape the telemarketers!
