This person made their cold-calling job extra easy with a life hack of sorts.
As a cold caller, you’re signing up for a job that’s both repetitive and competitive. You have to make the same exact sales pitch dozens of times per day, but you can’t let the monotony get to you. Instead, you have to convince potential clients to purchase your company’s service. For those with the charisma of a salesperson, this job can be great. However, this OP, u/Unashamed_Outrage, writes that they strongly disliked the gig. And, weirdly, their boss kept switching their role between contractor and employee, “when it suited him.” That seems less than legal, but at least this cold caller got some incredibly satisfying malicious compliance on their boss.
In addition to maliciously complying their boss’s desires, this person also made the world a better place by preventing cold calls from happening in the first place.
