(no subject)

I own my own company. That sounds impressive to me, even after having my business license for several years now.

Not that I've really done anything with it, mind you. I haven't quit my day job, I haven't made untold piles of money, I haven't used my business ID to scam wholesale office supplies.

This morning, as I was going out the door, I got a phone call.

Them: "Is this Big Dice Games?"
Me: "Uh, Yeah"
Them: "Do you take Visa?"
Me: "Um, No"

I strongly suspect that the person at the other end was cold calling to offer a credit card processing service, and was not actually interested in buying any of the games... the, um, let's see... the zero games that I have available for purchase under that name.

But it makes me sad that I have come to distrust people offering me goods and services over the phone to the point where I will hang up on them so quickly.
