There have been times in my life where I have been a  cold calling MONSTER!  But I can tell you I have never experienced anything like this:

Phone rage leads to arrest here for Ohio man

By Matthew Hathaway

An Ohio man, fed up with deceptive junk mail, made the mistake of losing his temper while on the phone with a St. Louis company pitching an extended auto-service contract. Now he finds himself behind bars, where he is charged with making a terrorist threat.

According to court documents, Charles W. Papenfus, 43, allegedly told a sales representative during a May 18 telephone call that he would burn down the building and kill the employees and their families. He was indicted for making a terrorist threat, a Class D felony; and he could be sentenced to up to four years in prison if convicted.

  1. I know most people hate cold calling, but it doesn’t bother me. To me it’s a game. I look at it like a challenge to get to the next level. It’s no different than working your way to the end level boss of a video game. 😉

  2. I do it because it gets me to where I need to be. Do I love it? Not really. I prefer networking with people in person. But I do it and I can make it fun for myself.
