So a lady from Optus came around to my house today to notify me of an upgrade to the nearest Optus exchange .. here’s how the conversation went:
<Optus lady> Hi, don’t worry I’m not here to convert your religion or anything
<Optus lady> I was just wishing to notify you of an exchange upgrade which will not allow you to avoid the $30 line rental each month…
<noisypoppy> Oh, I already have naked ADSL through internode on an optus exchange ..
<Optus lady> … what?
<noisypoppy> I get my internet through internode, who (in my area) use the optus exchange ..
<Optus lady> Oh .. so you’re already an optus customer ..?
<noisypoppy> well sorta but not really .. my money goes to internode who give money to you in exchange for ports on the exchange in which to offer their services ..
<Optus lady> okay .. so you have wireless?
<noisypoppy> well yes .. internal wireless .. not 3G .. I have naked adsl, through internode ..
<Optus lady> oh ..okay .. well .. since you’re already an optus customer I don’t need to let you know about it .. thanks for your business!
<noisypoppy> .. you’re welcome ..?
