We telemarketers know we're universally loathed. Still, some people are surprisingly, quite pleasant on the phone.

One day I called a number and asked to speak with Mr. Morgan. The woman who answered explained that he no longer lived at that address, but she did have a number for me where he could be reached.

Naturally, I took the number down, thanked her, and then promptly rang that number.

I was greeted with....

     "Good morning,  Highland View Cemetery."
