I thought it was TRULY impressive that they cold-called me, even though the company I worked for HAD service from them. :) Funny thing was he didn't believe me. Then he was really annoyed when I indicated that it was entirely possible we wouldn't be staying with them since that was a development location and there were a lot cheaper places to get better service. Of course, management had no immediate plans, but everything is a statistical probability. Cold-callers annoy me. That's enough reason to rule them out for service in my not-so-humble opinion. :) D
