Me: 1; Them: 0

Got a call from a long-distance salesdroid yesterday. It turns out that quoting a better deal than the guy on the other end of the line is authorized to offer you is a pretty good way of ending such conversations quickly.

He offered me no monthly fee and five cents a minute.

I told him that my current plan has no monthly fee and costs me three cents a minute.

After the briefest of pauses, he said that he couldn't beat that rate, thanked me for my time, and rung off.

Thirty seconds, start to finish.
