While I was a student, a good 12 years ago, I started working in Telesales (selling advertising space) in London during the Summer holiday in order to make some cash and spend it attempting to charm the ladies.
I was awful at it – really truly awful. My main problem was that I had a brain. We were of course instructed to “read the script, stick to the script, follow the script, yeah?” but I could not bring myself to read out loud such a collection of notionally English words, mainly as a result of my awareness of an abstract concepts such as syntax, grammar and the like.
My question – has anybody ever worked in such an environment, followed and the script and made money?
