Already mentioned the 70s today in that International Week thread, but man,
...., those must've been eye opening days.
Wasn't the best time traveling to matches, also spent more time watching yer back than the match,
I once knew a professional hooligan, his crew would get paid to join any clubs fans around the country, away from football he was a really nice bloke,bit of a psycho tho,
Also knew a guy back in the 90’s……. He moved to Portugal which was a great way to lose contact
…… but he was a pension plan insurance salesman. Nice on the phone with people when you’d overhear him talking “numbers” etc……. But my goodness
Absolute nutter at the football.
His name wasn't Steve was it , This fella was a critical Life Insurance rep.
He worked with my son, I Called in this call centre place they worked in one afternoon to pick the son up,
Any way I was early and sat next to Steve while he was cold calling with no luck all day, I said the next call let me have a go,
So the next next number on the list I made the call.
Got chatting to this fella on the phone and having a right laugh, All the other reps were giving me the evil look,
Anyway this fella actually agreed to take out this insurance and I gave the phone back to Steve who took his details and arranged the visit.
These folk in the call centre couldn't believe i got a take on just one call,
Anyway a few weeks later my son said Steve was looking for me,
Apparently Steve had gone round there to get a signature and this fella's wife answered the door, she said he suffered with Dementia and should never have answered the phone while she was out, good thing this fella only lived like 80 miles away.
don't think Steve was best pleased,
