TalkTalk posts 3% sales drop, says Openreach should walk the WalkWalk


I don't get what the fuss is about with these chuggers and sales wallahs that hang around supermarkets, shopping centres and whatnot. They are the walking equivalent of stress balls you can be as passive aggressive as you like with.

A stern look in their eye and a menacing growl of "Piss off" tends to make them retreat as fast as they can. Try it, trust me it's the most passive aggressive way of bringing a little light relief to your day that you can do.

The same process works with sales people who call on the phone. Just say "Get lost" and put the phone down. Maybe don't do this at work though...
