How to tell you’re a nerd: Method 190 (or Mid-World telemarketing techniques)


You are contacted by a telemarketer, who is attempting to sell you a service you do not want or need.  When they refuse to take “No” for an answer, you decide it would be funny to speak to them in the parlance of a Mid-World resident from the Dark Tower book series.

You then say the following statement, which causes the telemarketer to become very confused and you then hang up: “By the Turtle, I said no thankee-sai! Life for your crop!”

Mission accomplished…

  1. Loving these Dark Tower posts!

    • Thankee-sai. I’ve been re-reading the Dark Tower books so that I could discover the newest volume in the chronological order of the overall story. I’m about 33% through the latest book, having just finished Wizard and Glass. Mid-World just seems to be everywhere I look. It’s bringing out my inner Cuthbert Allgood. I plan on quite a few more Dark Tower posts before I enter the clearing at the end of the path, and old man decades from this when and where.
