The Importance of Being Earnest

Today’s toon is summarized aptly as: “Your call really isn’t important to us.”

Thanks to the “Do Not Call” registry, we’ve eliminated 90% of the phone solicitation calls we used to get. But there are still a few outliers who ping us from time to time, and I wish I could muster the gumption to do what Bob did in today’s comic.

Got a funny phone solicitation story? Share it in the comments!

    There’s always the option of giving the phone to your girl and telling her that it’s Santa on the other end if she would still go for something like that.

    Love Bob in strips like this. I’d do the same thing.

      lol. Thanks, Ben! Bob’s a snarky bugger at times, and that’s what I love the most about his character.

Tell me what you think!
