Washington Times Telemarketing

I was working late yesterday, and I got a call from a telemarketing lady around 6:30PM trying to sell me Washington Times newspaper. I guess I never bothered to register my office number in the "do not call" list. After her sales speach, here's how the conversation took place.

Me: "Do you know who you're calling?"
Sales Lady: "No, I don't"
Me: "This is the office of The Washington Post"
Sales Lady: "Ahhh.....the competition"
Me: "Yeah, sorry, I don't think I'd be buying your newspaper, I don't think my job would appreciate that"
Sales Lady: Slight laugh, "I understand, have a good night"
Me: "You too"

Just thought it was somewhat weird, and share it with you guys.
