Phone call just before: guy doing the hard sell trying to get me to buy some add on to my phone bill to help me save money.
push. push. push.
I tried several times to tell him that I was going to think about it, he just kept pushing.
Finally, I said "look, I have Aspergers and sensory processing disorder. I actually can't make snap decisions on the phone. I am going to think about it, and I'll call you back."
"oh" silence from his end. then. "should I call you back around this time tomorrow" (not a question, he was already penning my name in his 'call back and bug the ever living daylights out of' book.
"NO. I told you, *I* will call back, WHEN I have made a decision"
and I hung up.
feeling so good :)
A second comment she added after.
"I know that if I make a decision on the spot it's not a good idea, especially with phone calls. and if I'm pushed into something I panic and worry that its the wrong decision. I need to make informed decisions!"
Her response to me:
"I felt so... liberated and I was just a clap short of flapping."
Reading about stories like this makes my heart sing. I love it!
